Allegan State Game Area is a 50,000 acre forest that attracts campers, hikers, bikers, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, horse trail riders, and hunters. The area designated as the mountain bike trails are shared with skiers in the winter.

This trail network is located in west-central Allegan County, Michigan. The area around the State Game Area is similar in many respects, being predominantly wooded and rural in nature, with some pockets of agriculture mixed in. No large communities are found in this portion of the county.

Visiting Tips

November 15-30 is deer hunting season. It is best to not hike or ride your horses in this area at that time.

It's also close to Ely Lake Campground, so you can easily make a long weekend traveling through unfamiliar territory.
