Pigeon River Country
The Pigeon River Country State Forest (PRCSF) is rugged, remote, wild, and scenic. The Pigeon River Country is a treasured destination for hunters, fishermen, hikers, campers, bikers, horseback riders, mushroomers, canoeists and photographers. It is dedicated to offering solitude and contemplative recreation to those who seek freedom and quiet beauty among wild undeveloped woods, waters and wildlife.
The effort to protect and restore the natural communities of Pigeon River Country began a century ago in 1919 with unfaltering passion, awe, and a deep love of wild places. Since that initial grassroots movement, a diverse group of public and private sector leaders forged ahead making the conservation and responsible management of over 115,000 contiguous acres their living legacy.
The Big Wild is biologically rich and offers visitors, young and mature, a restorative retreat into the wilderness of northern Michigan. The blue-ribbon trout streams, cerulean sinkhole lakes, and reintroduced elk population are a reminder of what is most important: healthy forests, high-quality watersheds, and thriving populations of flora and fauna. Come and enjoy a variety of recreational activities, experience the trails and scenic views, come and find your solitude.
