The blockhouse was unfortunately vandalized in recent years but the community rose up and funded a restoration. It's a great place to check out as of 2022.
From Lost in Michigan
This blockhouse stands on a hill along a scenic drive through Muskegon State Park. It was built in 1962 replacing one built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933. The original blockhouse built using timbers from an old sailing ship burned down in a fire set by local youths. As part of their punishment after being convicted of arson they were required to help in the construction of the new blockhouse. If you are ever taking a drive through Muskegon State Park be sure to stop and see the new old blockhouse.
