W.J. Hayes State Park, in the heart of the Irish Hills, is bordered by a group of inland lakes frequented by anglers and boaters. The park's close proximity to Michigan International Speedway, crafts and antique shows and other attractions make Hayes State Park a prime tourist destination. The park is also newly handicapped accessible.

Hayes State Park is one of the system's oldest state parks. Dedicated in 1920, the park originally was named Cedar Hill State Park. The name changed when the Hayes family donated land to the park with the condition that it be renamed to honor Walter J. Hayes, a Michigan senator. The park has gone through many changes, but the major constant has been the attraction of Michigan's visitors to the recreational waters of Wamplers Lake.

Very clean and nice campgroung. Not a whole lot for the kids to do at the campground. My only complaint is there is LOTS and LOTS of visable posion ivy on many of the campsites and edge of paved walkways.
July 21 Beautiful Park, our favorite. by looghe
The few days we were there, primarily at the beach, were great. Exceptionally clean, not just the water, the entire park !! Plan on going back real soon.
