Parks

It has been said that the best memories are often made outdoors. River Country is awash in picturesque locations to create those memories. With more than 30 local parks, sanctuaries and preserves to choose from, you’ll need to stay several days to see them all!

Spend some quite time soaking up nature’s beauty. Local wetlands provide the perfect opportunity to observe a variety of bird and animal species. Be sure to pack your camera! Breathtaking photos of flora and fauna are just a click away.

Immerse yourself in nature on one of the many walking, hiking and biking trails located throughout River Country. Winding through woodlands and over rolling hills, trails are available in varying lengths and difficulty levels.

Visitors of every age can find an activity that suits them. Many parks feature picnic areas, boat launches, playgrounds and disc golf courses.

For more information, visit the websites for Cass County Parks and St. Joseph County Parks. Bird watchers are encouraged to visit Nottawa Wild Bird Seed to learn more about local bird watching locations. For your convenience, we also offer a self-guided bird watching and nature tour itinerary.
