Equipment

Spend the afternoon hiking the shoreline of Lake Michigan at the Wilderness State Park. At dusk, we'll head over to the Headlands Park. It has more to offer than dazzling views of Orion and the Milky Way. Artificial lighting is rare within the 243-hectare park and Emmet County intends to keep the area as natural as possible. A county-wide outdoor lighting ordinance helps curtail the growth of artificial light at night in surrounding areas.
