Kal-Haven Trail State Park This 34.5 mile trail is located only a ¼ mile from our campground. This trail requires a pass that we hope to sell soon. The Kal-Haven Trail used to be a railroad that existed for 100 years since 1870. The right-of-way was then purchased by the Department of Natural Resources in 1987 and was opened as a trail in 1991. The trail is used for biking, hiking, and offers horseback riding on an adjacent trail from 66th Street into Bloomingdale. While hiking on the Kal-Haven Trail, one can view the scenery or enjoy nature’s animals. In the winter the trail is used for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
Van Buren Trail State Park Is an unimproved dirt/gravel trail that runs for a total of 14 miles from South Haven to Hartford, Michigan. This trail was also a former railroad system.

This trail can be entered from the main entrance at Van Buren State Park which is located off Ruggles Road, South Haven. Entrance can also be gained off Blue Star Hwy, near 11th Avenue. This trail also has a pass system to pay for maintenance.
