Recreational Opportunities

There are many recreational opportunities throughout Southwest Michigan year round. In the winter you can snowboard or ski at Swiss Valley, or take the kids tubing at Madeline Bertrand Park, or if you prefer to stay warm you can watch or join the kids while that skate at an indoor roller or ice skating rink or even get wet at an indoor water park!


In the spring, summer, and fall enjoy the wondrous outdoors at numerous campgrounds and county parks where you can hike or bike the trails, play a game of disc golf, swim, lay out on the beach, or relax with a picnic in the park. There are also a great number of inland lakes where you can fish or just enjoy the beautiful scenery as you read a book on the boat. Get out on the greens at a variety of golf courses in Southwest Michigan including The Golf Club at Harbor Shores, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed Golf Course.
