Fisherman's Island State Park is public recreation area of 2,678 acres (1,084 ha) sitting on six miles (9.7 km) of the Lake Michigan shoreline southwest of Charlevoix, Michigan.  Due to historically low lake levels, for most of 1998 to 2016 the small Fisherman Island, for which the state park was named, had become attached to the mainland via a tombolo.
Activities and amenities
The island is located 0.7 miles (1.2 km) from the picnic area. The park features rustic campgrounds with some of the sites nestled in the dunes along the lake shore. The park road travels through the campground to the picnic area with access to swimming beaches and over three miles of hiking trails. The interior terrain consists largely of rolling dunes covered with maple, birch and aspen broken up by bogs of cedar and black spruce. Hunting and snowmobiling are also permitted. The park is operated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
