This area is connected to the river trail and seems so tranquil. There are places to picnic, fish and launch a boat. The lake is small and peaceful.

Crego Park, a relatively new City of Lansing park, has it's own small lake perfect for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. The water is calm so it's good for beginners. It has a boat launch and nice walkways, benches and parking lot.

This heavily wooded, 200 acre park gives the feel of a scenic mountain venue, yet it is located only three miles southeast of the state Capitol building. The gorgeous Fidelity lake is easily accessible by car from Mount Hope Avenue via Fidelity Road and by...More

Ralph W. Crego Park was closed for several decades. It was reopen in 2014. There is a pretty little lake with access for non-motorized boats. A pier from which you can fish and trail access to the River Walk Trail. A nice place to go...More
