Other features[edit]

  • The Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center, located adjacent to the park, is available for rental by government agencies, educational groups and other nonprofit organizations.
  • The Civilian Conservation Corps Museum, Roscommon, also located next to the park, documents the role of the Civilian Conservation Corps in Michigan from 1933 to 1942 when more than 100,000 young Michigan men performed a variety of conservation and reforestation efforts. Exhibits tell the story of how the Michigan CCC planted 484 million trees, spent 140,000 days fighting forest fires and constructed 7,000 miles of truck trails, 504 bridges and 222 buildings. The Michigan state park system carries many examples of their work still in use today, including the MacMullan Conference Center.
