Frontage: When added with state land to the north, nearly 1.5 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline with a shallow swimming beach are accessible.
Trail: A short trail (.4 mile) and footbridges allow visitors to explore the sensitive habitat without damaging it. The preserve provides public access to the lake and to a shallow, marshy beach.
Land Description: A mix of conifer forest, thick cedar swamp, and sand dune habitats. Lake Huron Tansy and other threatened or endangered species thrive here.
Directions: From the Welke’s airport, go south on East Side Drive for approximately 200 yards. Look for a sign on the left side of the road.
