Working together to preserve, protect, and promote Negwegon State Park through stewardship, education, and research

The Friends of Negwegon State Park's mission is to "preserve, protect, and promote Negwegon State Park through stewardship, education, and research."


We are a non-profit, voluntary Association incorporated by the State of Michigan. Our mission is to “Preserve, Protect and Promote”  Negwegon State Park. The Park comprises 2,469 acres including almost eight miles of undeveloped Lake Huron shoreline located within Alcona and Alpena Counties. Within the Park are four distinct topographical zones:

3) grasslands

4) upland deciduous forests 

Access to Negwegon State Park is by way of a seasonal road or by water. Notable features of the Park include rare birds, mammals and reptiles, endangered plants and trees,  pre-historic native American ruins and off-shore ship wrecks.
