Formerly the private hunting retreat of an auto manufacturer, the Depart- ment of Conservation purchased it and turned it into a field research laboratory before passing it on to the Parks Division in 1963. Rifle River offers a wonderful collection of lakes, navigable rivers, and wilderness. Modern sites are located in Grousehaven campground, while 3 other campgrounds in the park offer a rustic experience. The multiuse trail offers 14 miles for hikers and mountain bikers. Canoe launches lie on several points along Rifle River. Fishing is good in the 10 lakes and many miles of streams. The Au Sable River Road Scenic Byway is 20 miles east of here.
