Hartwick Pines Logging Museum

Grayling, Michigan


Approximately 1,981





Hartwick Pines Logging Museum is located in Hartwick Pines State Park in Crawford County, approximately eight miles northeast of Grayling. This state park is the largest state park in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula at 9,672 acres. The park’s topography includes rolling hills consisting of ancient glacial deposits that overlook the valley of the East Branch of the AuSable River. You will also find four small lakes within the park’s boundaries. The logging museum is surrounded by one of the largest remaining stands of virgin white pine in Michigan, so spend some time walking the forest trails.
You’ll step back into the 19th-century logging era as you enjoy the museum’s log camp exhibits. During this time, Michigan led the nation in sawed lumber production. The Hartwick Pines State Park is open year-round and offers camping, picnicking, biking, and other seasonal activities. This state park is also a great destination for paddling, mountain biking, snowshoeing, birding, metal detecting, and exploring Michigan's great outdoors. Miles of trails offer hikers of all ages and abilities the chance to explore the diverse wildlife and forest landscapes. The logging museum is open daily from the beginning of May through the end of October, but you can enjoy this park during all four seasons. Remember to document your visit to Hartwick Pines Logging Museum by capturing some pics of those great white pines!
