Lake Antoine Park Partners


Lake Antoine Park Partners

Lake Antoine Park PartnersThis 501(c)3 organization was formed in 2017 by the county board with the mission to preserve, improve, promote and protect Lake Antoine Park in Dickinson County, Michigan, for the use and benefit of the general public. On the non-partisan board, two county commissioners and seven (7) volunteer citizens are seated for three (3) year terms. Two members of the local Youth Advisory Council attend meetings to offer their input.

Volunteer projects have been Work Bees to get the park ready for campers to enjoy the sites, free weekend movies for campers and park patrons, raising funds and seeking grants for projects including working with local Girl Scouts to spruce up our trashcans, the 2018 start of a Beach Rehab, 2019 environmental stations for recycling beverage containers and having dog stations for waste baggies, and the 2020 start of a Wifi Cafe for park patrons.  In  the spring of 2021, the boat landing kiosk was gutted and renovated to provide information to anglers and recreational boaters. On tap for the summer of 2021 are plans to raise funds for a kayak launch site.
