I heard about some bad things happening at this park in the past, but drove past it every day to go to work, I never noticed any illegal activities, now I believe the Cops from Cops and Doughnuts have taken over it's care and have heard no more stories. No restrooms, there is a hand pump and a stream.

A very interesting historical marker located in a rest area on US-27 north of Clare, MI. The discovery of oil and petroleum under the state of Michigan was report in 1860 by the state geologist. A nice map show where these deposts are located.
