Fred Meijer Nature Preserve @ Pickerel Lake


The Fred Meijer Nature Reserve at Pickerel Lake, located southeast of Rockford, MI, is a beautiful park in the Kent County Park system with wonderful resources. The lake is the centerpiece of this park, with boardwalks extending over portions of it. However, if you take the time to walk through you will also discover other small ponds with beaver, a large tamarack swamp, glacial moraines, and a nice climax forest - all waiting to be discovered. Interpretive panels at this park invite the visitor to look for the wildlife, discover the ecosystems, and look closer at the area they are exploring.
