Negwegon State Park Professional Review and Guide
"The Negwegon State Park includes 2,400 acres of land and 8 miles of Lake Huron coast. The route from Black River to Ossineke includes the full 8-mile coast of the park with only short sections of private land holdings. The shoreline consists of cobble and sand beaches and many shoal and marsh areas, a perfect habitat for waterfowl and wading birds. Off South Point there are two low islands, Bird Island and Scarecrow Island, which are part of the Michigan Island National Wildlife Refuge.
In the summer nesting season, both islands are teeming with bird life, with large gull, heron, and cormorant rookeries. The Thunder Bay area also had great spiritual significance to the early Native Americans of the region. In all ninety-eight small carved stone disks dated to the twelfth century have been found in this region. If you come across any of these ruins, please respect them and leave the sites undisturbed."
