Muskegon, Michigan is home to three state parks, eight county parks and four nature preserves.
A nature preserve is an area retained for the purpose of preserving native flora and fauna. Smaller in size than national, state or county parks, their primary purpose is the protection of nature. Simply put, parks are managed for people while preserves are intended for nature.
