Water Front Recreation

The City of Houghton offers a lakefront recreation area second to none in the state. Not just a park, but a complete one-stop facility. We provide picnic areas with individual BBQ grills and tables, to restrooms with changing facilities. Vending machine available.

Kids of all ages enjoy our "Chutes and Ladders", the ultimate playground.

You can also visit our East Houghton Waterfront Park, which is located on the waterfront trail just West of the Super 8 motel and provides access for kayaks and small sailboats to the water. There are also bathroom facilities complete with showers in the pavilion.
