Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park lies along U-23 and
the Straits of Mackinac shoreline, about 4 miles eat of Mackinaw City,
Michigan. The 625 acre Michigan state park opened in the early 1980s and
the attractions have grown over the years. Mill Creek has a reconstructed
18th Century saw mill, museums, a staff naturalist, and 3.5 miles of trails.
Since 2008 there is a forest canopy bridge, zip line and
climbing wall. They are a good addition. The only disappointing thing is
that manyvisitors now appear to completely ignoring the historic aspects
of the park. But part of that may be because there were no demonstrations
of the saw mill on the day that I visited.
Mill Creek provided lumber for the settlement of Mackinac
Island in the 1790s.
