Spring-Fall Activities

We pride ourselves on the quality and variety of experiences we offer.

Every season has its charm, beauty, and possibilities for enjoyment at Meemo’s. Between spring and fall the migratory birds return, the fish are active, the fields and forests regain their fullness, and every turn holds a new discovery.

The world famous AuSable and Manistee Rivers have a slow current, crystal clear water and no rocks or rapids, just an easy 3-5 mile per hour current.

Canoeing or kayaking through beautiful forests of pine, birch and cedar on rivers perfect for beginners, couples, families or large groups is the ideal way to enjoy a warm summer day or to view magnificent fall colors. Catch an occasional glimpse of deer, mink, blue heron, several species of ducks, and other birds and wildlife. Enjoy trips with swimming, fishing, and picnicking. Kayaks are available for a unique outdoor experience.  Trips range in length from 2 1/2 hours to several days.

Hartwick Pines

The Hartwick Pines Visitor Center, at Hartwick Pines State Park, draws thousands of visitors, campers and school children each year to see one of Michigan’s last stands of majestic old-growth pine forest.

For many visitors, Hartwick Pines is a mystical place, offering a serene escape from the modern world, and the year-round, fully accessible visitor center is a gateway to the towering pine forest and the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum that helps us remember when “White Pine Was King.”

Bird Watching

Meemo’s is a bird watching paradise and the key is diversity of habitat. The farm can be broken into several distinct habitats, each of which supports a different group of birds. Because we’re located in the heart of a state that boasts more than 409 recorded bird species, we’re ideally positioned to take full advantage of what is considered to be the largest spectator sport in the United States.
