There are two fantastic interconnected nature areas on the shores of Saginaw Bay: Tobico Marsh and Bay City State Park. Both of these locations offer a long list of outdoor recreational activities and opportunities for visitors to enjoy the beauty of Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron. From picnics and long walks on the sandy shoreline to hiking trails and birdwatching, you’ll love enjoying the fresh air and immersing yourself in the natural surroundings at Bay City State Park.
The 2,000-acre Tobico Marsh lies within Bay City State Park, and it’s the largest remaining freshwater coastal wetlands on the Great Lakes. With its extensive marshes, open lagoon, and location along a central migratory bird flyway, this area is unique and valuable to our environment. The diverse and distinct habitats are ideal for nesting birds, shore birds, and coastal wildlife. Bay City State Park and Tobico Marsh are must-visits for birdwatching enthusiasts.
