Pinckney Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"Here’s an expansive park with something for everyone. At 11,000 acres the recreation area includes a chain of lakes and boat access on Bruin, Halfmoon, South, North, Joslin, Portage, Crooked, Gosling, and Hiland Lakes. Half the modern sites, all located at Bruin Lake, are unshaded and are close to the water. The sites at Blind and Crooked Lakes campgrounds are all rustic and cost half what the mod- ern sites do per night. The Blind Lake sites are walk-in, but the Crooked Lake sites have a drive-up loop and a boat launch. Hikers have over 60 miles of trails to explore, while mountain bikers have 24, and horses 8. A cabin and yurt are rentable."
