Love Creek winds its way through this rolling 150-acre natural area outside of Berrien Springs, Michigan. Six miles of hiking trails provide access to a variety of habitats, including a mature Beech-Maple forest with spectacular spring wildflowers.
The Berrien County Parks Commission's naturalist service is based here and activities are available throughout the year.
