Parks and Recreation

Welcome to Newaygo County Parks. The Newaygo County Parks System includes a marina and five county parks with day use and camping opportunities. To enhance your outdoor experience we are surrounded by the World Class Muskegon River, North Country National Scenic Trail, 4,000 acre Hardy Pond and the 538,000 acre Manistee National Forest.


Welcome Center Volunteers Needed!

The Newaygo County Welcome Center on M-37, just north of Newaygo, is looking for volunteer ambassadors to talk with visitors looking for information on camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and other great opportunities available. Would you be willing to attend a training and commit to one four-hour shift a month? If so please call the Welcome Center at 231-689-7344 or email  Trainings are scheduled for Nov. 10 & 16. Thank you for sharing your love of Newaygo County with others.
