Long Description:
The park is irregularly shaped. You may enter from the East. Bring a map, and pay attention to the no trespassing signs.

Hunting season is a good time to avoid looking for this one, also.

This benchmark is a replacement of a monument to the Michigan Prime Meridian that has disappeared.
