- Seven Lakes State Park, located minutes from downtown Holly, offers a 70-site campground with handicapped accessibility, restrooms, children's playground and lake access. Camping facilities are open May 1 to September 15.
Two of the seven lakes offer boat launches, the other require a portage. Paddling Dickinson Lake affords an experience on a secluded, mirrored lake surrounded by a beautiful unbroken forest. The peaceful nature of this lake attracts more than a few anglers and paddlers; birds love the serene atmosphere and many may be viewed feeding at water's edge or chirping while perched on fallen timber.
The park offers a quiet sand beach for sunbathers and swimmers. Hiking trails double as cross-country routes in winter. Picnicking is another relaxing pursuit at the park.
Recreation - Visitors come to this park to swim, hunt, fish, hike, boat, picnic, paddle and cross-country ski.
Climate - Southeast Michigan is the warmest region in the state with summer temperatures averaging 70 degrees F (above 21 degrees C) but it is not infrequent for days to reach the high 80s. Winter temperatures are warmer as well with averages hovering just below freezing. Yearly moisture amounts range between 18 - 32 inches.
The park is situate several miles north of Fenton between US-23 and Interstate 75. Take Grange Hall Road to Fish Lake Road to reach the park entrance.
