Located on the shores of Lake Huron, north of Alpena, the property includes a deep-water protected harbor, an old limestone quarry of approximately 300 acres, a unique series of sinkholes, a dedicated Natural Area (Besser Natural Area) and a broad range of land types, vegetative cover, cultural resources and recreation opportunities.

There are 9.2 miles of trails available for horseback riding. Some sections of the trail are mixed-use. Horses are recommended to wear shoes or boots due to rocky terrain. Trailers are allowed in public parking lots. It is recommended to bring your own water supply for animals as there is no potable water source on site.
