This 142-acre property includes nearly a mile of Grand River frontage and a diversity of natural communities including wetlands, mature mixed hardwood and pine forest, and remnants of prairie plant communities. The site offers outstanding views of the Grand River and expansive wetlands to the north. Visitor facility improvements and renovations to the existing log cabin were completed in 2012.

Dogs are permitted at Connor Bayou. From May 1 through September 30, we ask that you take your pet on designated trails only. For the safety and enjoyment of all park guests, pets must be on ten foot leashes and under control. Owners must clean up after their pet and dispose of waste in a trash receptacle. Dogs are not permitted in park buildings, restrooms, picnic shelters, or as posted. Leader dogs for persons with disabilities are permitted in all areas at any time. Recognizing that most dogs enjoy running and playing freely, many Ottawa County Open Space Lands allow dogs year-round off leash.
Located in Robinson Township, this park can be reached by traveling north on 128th Avenue to N. Cedar Drive. Turn left on N. Cedar (unpaved) to reach the park entrance.
