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.


Select seasonal campsites for 2015 are still available. Reservations for each park will be taken at the Parks Administration office until the park opens; then reservations may be made at the individual park location.


Host Campers Needed

Do you enjoy camping and helping people? The Newaygo County Park and Recreation Department is seeking applications from those interested in becoming host campers. Host campers may volunteer on a monthly or seasonal basis.

Host campers would be provided a campsite at the campground they are assigned. They would assist the manager in a variety of duties that may include providing information to others, organizing camper activities, performing campground maintenance, patrolling the campground/park, etc.


If you are interested in becoming a Host camper call 231-652-9298.
