“They have a restaurant only and then a sports bar that has karaoke on the weekends. The same food is available on both sides of this restaurant. This place is easy to get to without the traffic of the city. We like the food and selections.”

“If you bring a boat, we recommend putting in on HARDY DAM for a day, this area is owned by Consumers Powers and is open for boaters to pull to beaches, climb dunes and explore. Advanced mountain bikers will soon be able to ride a 47.5 mile trail to be know as 'The Dragon."”

River
“The Muskegon River runs south-west from northern Michigan and empties into Lake Michigan at the pier, about 2 miles north of the lake house. The Muskegon is home to world class fishing, including brown, brook & rainbow trouts (steelhead) as well as a chinook (king salmon) run in the fall and the occasional lake sturgeon. The best fishing is about an hour away, between the town of Newaygo and the Croton dam. There's a great fly shop in Newaygo that can help you with any questions. ”
