Newaygo, Michigan Parks, Trails, Pictured Rocks, Attractions & More

Newaygo borders the Muskegon River, and its small downtown area features historic brick store fronts and locally-owned businesses. Chain restaurants are located south of downtown on M-37/M-82, and you'll find a grocery store and some larger retailers near the southern junction of M-37 and M-82.

Newaygo Area Parks

Ed H. Henning County Park is a nice recreation area north of downtown Newaygo, along the Muskegon River. The park has a modern campground with 60 electric sites, shower facilities, and sanitation station. The park's athletic facilities include tennis courts, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, horse shoe pits, and a volleyball court. Several picnic areas are located around the park, and the one near the boat launch has a terrific view of the Muskegon River.

Shaw Park is home to Loomis Lodge, which can be rented for meetings and community events. The park has several old-growth shade trees and can be used for picnics.

Near Vera Wilsie Elementary, there is a playground and small soccer field off Stake Street.

South of downtown on M-37, Vet's Field is used for little league baseball. The park is adjacent to the VFW Hall.

Fishing & Boating

The Muskegon River is the second longest river in Michigan and is a popular tributary for fishing. Anglers cast their lines to catch steelhead, trout, smallmouth bass, and salmon in the river.

A valid fishing license is required to fish on Michigan waterways, and you can get a Michigan fishing license online at the Michigan DNR E-License web site and at bait shops and sporting goods stores.

Kayaking and canoeing on the Muskegon River can provide a scenic adventure. The United States Canoe Association selected the Newaygo and the Muskegon River for 2011 National Canoe and Kayak Championships.
