Bring your family and all your friends for a day of fun ...
A great spot spring, summer, and fall alike. Located just south of town on M-134, Malette Park offers families a great picnic, swimming, fishing, freighter watching, kayaking, and boating spot on the St Mary's River. With 10 picnic tables, five charcoal grills, a sandy beach with volleyball, and plenty of sun and shade, you can relax all day. A DNR public boat launch on the south end of this park allows for all around fun.
On the north end of this park you will find a roadside turnout with a viewing platform overlooking Olmstad Bay and St Mary's River, a picnic table with a charcoal drill, ample parking plus an information booth offering maps and flyers about DeTour and surrounding communities and eastern upper peninsula.
