Maplehurst Natural Area

  • About

    This spectacular 389-acre property in Antrim County’s Milton Township is one of the largest remaining intact and undeveloped parcels near Torch Lake. From 1955 until 2011 it was home to Camp Maplehurst, a summer camp beloved by generations of campers and counselors. This beautiful parcel has 150 acres of steep hardwood forested bluffs that drain into Torch Lake and open meadows that surround Lake Maplehurst, a 60-acre spring-fed gem. Its position on high ground means visitors have excellent views of Torch Lake, Elk Lake and Grand Traverse Bay. A wonderful trail system opened to the public in 2019.
