Park Information


This 432-acre parcel is the newest Eaton County Parks and Recreation area. Crandell Park is not only Eaton County's newest and largest park it also contains Eaton County's largest lake at just under 160 acres with depths up to 35 feet.

The park is open to the public as an undeveloped natural area with a carry in-carry out policy (including pet waste), for passive recreation use. Such usage includes bird and wildlife watching, walking, running, hiking, catch and release fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a maximum 6-foot leash. The public has foot access to the park from the designated parking lot on M-50 just west of Stewart Road. Please respect your new Eaton County Park and be patient as we plan for future development and access.

  • This park is beginning its developmental phase.
  • The walk around the lake following its contours is almost 3 miles.
