Activities & Attractions in Boyne City

The great outdoors surrounds Boyne City. Love to ski? Boyne Mountain is just a few minutes away. Golfer? Yes, Boyne City has golf! Ski in the winter, hunt for morels in the spring, sail on Lake Charlevoix in the summer, and golf surrounded by fabulous foliage in the fall.

Here’s a sampling of the many activities and attractions Boyne City has to offer:

Young State Park

Young State Park, outside Boyne City, is a ‘year round delight for campers, hikers, snow lovers, swimmers, and nature lovers.

Campers come back year after year to stay at one of the park’s three campgrounds. There are two trails that offer great hiking and, during the winter, snowshoe hikes and cross country skiing. Because the park is located on the east end of Lake Charlevoix, it’s a great place to sit on the beach or go fishing or boating.
