Interlochen State Park

Located just 15 miles southwest of Traverse City, Interlochen State Park is situated between two well-known fishing and swimming lakes: Green Lake and Duck Lake. The park was established as Michigan's first state park by the Michigan Legislature in 1917, which paid $60,000 for the land. The name of the park was originally Pine Park, a 200-acre public park created to preserve the virgin pine stand for the people of Michigan. In 1928, the National Music Camp was established on the property adjoining the northern boundary of the park. Due to a planned park enhancement project to replace the electrical system, including the addition of new pedestals in each campsite, Interlochen State Park's south campground is temporarily closed. The project is already underway and is scheduled for completion between Memorial Day and July 1, 2023.(updated 11/17/22)
