Park Rules

Visitors are required to stay on trails and picking or removing wildflowers or other plants is not permitted. 

Leashed dogs are permitted on trails when snow conditions do not exist. (Trails are closed to dogs and hiking when there is enough snow to groom trails for cross-country skiing and fat biking, as footprints damage the trails.) Check Love Creek News at the top of this page for current trail access conditions.  

Alcohol is prohibited at all Berrien County Parks locations.
