PETOSKEY, Mich. — Visitors to Wilderness State Park can take advantage of several recently completed barrier-free improvements — all designed to help more Michiganders enjoy the outdoors at this park in northern Emmet County.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating these enhancements is set for 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 23, at 903 Wilderness Park Drive in Carp Lake. The public and media both are invited to see and hear about the park’s new recreation features, including: a barrier-free campground registration building; a barrier-free toilet/shower building in the Lakeshore Campground (with a second one planned in a few years); walkway surface improvements; mobile access mats and a floating water chair to make beach and water access easier for persons of all mobility levels; and a wide range of barrier-free, rustic, modern and full hook-up campsites developed to provide a wider range of camper amenities.
