This event coincides with the Detroit Fishing Derby sponsored by the city of Detroit, May 15th - May 17th. The park sponsored derby is for children ages 13 and under who are camping in the campground. The derby gives the younger children an opportunity to participate in their own contest and to pick up a few fishing pointers. Park staff will be on site to assist and give any needed advice. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes are given to the participants who catch the biggest fish. A limited number of fishing poles are available to check out. No fee to enter.
