YOUNG STATE PARK
Young State Park is located at the east end of beautiful Lake Charlevoix. The park spans over 560 acres in Charlevoix County and is a mix of gently rolling terrain, lowlands and cedar swamp. Officially opened in 1921, some of the buildings in existence today were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s and 1940s.
The Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry into state parks and recreation areas, state boat launches, state forest campgrounds and state trail parking lots.
