Island Lake Recreation Area

Island Lake Recreation Area is a 4,000-acre park in Livingston County that offers an “up north” experience. The terrain is a mixture of open brush land to mature hardwood forest, with some pockets of open meadows mixed in.

Island Lake is the only balloon port in the state park system. Balloons usually take off in the early morning or late evening, depending on the wind and weather.

Island Lake Recreation Area has one of the nation’s safest shooting ranges. The park has great canoeing, volleyball courts, picnic shelters, swimming and cabins to rent.
