Last week, legislation was signed into law that doubles the number of state-designated dark-sky parks in Michigan from three to six. The six preserve locations are:

  • Lake Hudson Recreation Area – in Lenawee County
  • Negwegon State Park – Alpena and Algona Counties (added in 2016)
  • Port Crescent State Park – in Huron County
  • Rockport State Recreational Area – Presque Isle and Alpena Counties (added in 2016)
  • Thompson’s Harbor State Park – in Presque Isle County (added in 2016)
  • Wilderness State Park – in Emmet County
In addition, Headlands International Dark-Sky Park is located in Emmet County just west of Mackinaw City and adjacent to Wilderness State Park. It was designated by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2011.
