Map

This Map shows amenities, parking areas, features and trails. Tucked away in the middle of the county, this 444-acre park offers a year-round retreat for the outdoor enthusiast. Over ten miles of trails wind through old pine plantations, mature deciduous forests and through bottomland forests along the Pigeon River. The trail system includes designated trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. During the winter, this park is a popular cross-country ski destination with groomed trails for both classic and ski skating, sledding hills and snowshoe paths. Three miles of ski trails and a sledding hill are illuminated for evening activities and ski lessons are offered. The Pigeon Creek Lodge provides ski rental, a food and beverage concession and serves as a warming house. (Winter Map)

Dog Policy

Dogs are permitted at Pigeon Creek Park except when snow conditions are right for cross country skiing and sledding. 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 all times. Recognizing that most dogs enjoy running and playing freely, Ottawa County Open Space Lands allow dogs year-round off leash.
