Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park lies along U-23 and
the Straits of Mackinac shoreline, about 4 miles eat of Mackinaw City,
Michigan. The 625 acre Michigan state park opened in the early 1980s and
the attractions have grown over the years. Mill Creek has a reconstructed
18th Century saw mill, museums, a staff naturalist, and 3.5 miles of trails.
Since 2008 there is a forest canopy bridge, zip line and
climbing wall. They are a good addition. There are several demonstrations
of the saw mill and saw pit through the day. Check on the times when you

added. The mill operated until the 1830s.
