FAYETTE STATE PARK
The Garden Peninsula has its very own ghost town – at least that is what some call it. Fayette State Park manages the historic site of the town of Fayette. In the 1860s Fayette was a boom town created to make pig iron. Today, you can step back in time and relive a bit of that time in history. Situated right on Big Bay de Noc, the historic site of Fayette, rests in the shadows of towering limestone bluffs. One of the most beautiful views in Michigan is to look down on the town from the top of these bluffs. Fayette State Park features a campground, picnic area and public beach.
