Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve - Facilities


Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve is located east of the triple intersection at High Bluff Drive / Lake Shore Road and CTH C, in the Town of Grafton.  The 73 acre park is located along the bluffs of Lake Michigan.  The park is open to the public year round, with daily hours from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM.  There is an abundant amount of open space for many leisure activities like walking, bird-watching, or just soaking up the sun on a blanket.  Dogs and cats are welcome, if on a leash and cleaned up after.

There is over 1.5 miles of gravel and boardwalk trails throughout the park.  To enjoy a nice walk on the trails, you have to be willing to share them with the deer, birds and other wildlife that frequent the park.  The view of lake Michigan can be spectacular especially in the early morning hours.  Picnickers can can enjoy the view from the top of the Lake Michigan bluffs, or the more adventurous hikers can visit the beach by traveling down the the gorge stairs and bridges.  A viewing platform is also available for observing the diverse wildlife that inhabits the 44-acre USFWS Waterfowl Production Area that is adjacent to the park. 

Portable toilets are available near the parking lot.  Reservations can be made for almost every area in the park by calling 262-284-8257.
