Picnic Areas of HSC

Looking for a new picnic spot on the property?

Start at the top of the list, or jump around, and find your favorite spot for a quiet family picnic,
or a large group cook-out.  HSC has a place to meet your picnicing needs.

Activities Building

The picnic pavilion is centrally located adjacent to the Activities Building.  It is close to HSC's mini golf course, tennis courts, basketball court, archery range, Beaver Lake hiking trail, and is suitable for large gatherings needing multiple tables, shelter, and a grill.  A well-equipped playground and easy access to Lake Millecoquins makes this a family favorite. 

Club Cabins

Each group of cabins offers picnic tables, fire pits with grills, and a supply of campfire wood for the use of Members and their Guests.  

Cold Creek Pond

Multiple docks afford easy access to this well stocked trout pond.  Enjoy wildlife while you have lunch or hike around the edges for a memorable adventure.

Elbow Lake

Enjoy lunch amid the tall pines or fish for it on this undeveloped lake.  A grill, picnic table, and Club row boats await you!  While there, check out the McNamara Memorial established in honor of Mrs. Alta McNamara, the wife of HSC's founder.

Jocko Pond

Trout, trout, and more trout!  Take a hike up Jocko Canyon or simply wet a line from the many docks on this large stocked trout pond.  A picnic table and outhouse are located roadside. 


Lake Michigan Beach

Through the private gates on Highway 2, you'll find a picnic pavilion, grill, bonfire pit, and multiple modern outhouses making this an excellent choice for large groups of family and friends.

Pullup Lake

At the northeast corner of the Club and at the end of A-trail, this picnic shelter offers tables, a grill, outhouse, and a Club rowboat.  It's a private wilderness setting where the sounds of nature enchant and woodland hikes are rewarding.  A second somewhat smaller picnic area is at the west end of the lake.  

Rowe Overlook

This is one of the most majestic overlooks sites on the HSC.  It is a fitting honor to a visionary HSC Member, Bob Rowe.  Mr. Rowe made long lasting contributions to the HSC including establishing multiple hiking trails resurrected from deer paths, Native American and logging trails.  This is a great place to stop, rest, take a deep clear breath, and relish in the magnificent beauty of the Upper Peninsula.  You can see for miles and miles from here as the song goes . . . . .



Snowmobile Bridge

Kayak, canoe, or reach this peaceful spot on the scenic Millecoquins River by car or ATV.  A boat landing and picnic table make this an ideal starting, stopping, or resting point for HSC memories.
