Park Description from the State website

Sleepy Hollow State Park, located in Clinton County, contains more than 2,600 acres and is situated on Price Road off from US-27 near St. Johns, Ovid and Laingsburg. A river winds its way through the woods and fields of the park, and Lake Ovid is nestled in the middle of it all. Lake Ovid is a 410-acre lake developed by damming the Little Maple River. The park offers year-round opportunity for recreation.

Bikes are allowed on hiking trails only. There are 16 miles of hiking trails that take you through prairie grasses, hardwood forest and stands of pine trees

A Boat Concession is open from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Located near the boat launch, the concession offers rentals, live bait, fishing supplies, ice and food. Boat rentals are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day for row boats, canoes, motor boats and pontoons. Special group services are available. Call the concession at 517-651-6749 or the park at 517-651-6217. Please note that the service is closed during inclement weather and credit cards are not accepted.

How to get to the Campground

The park is about 76 miles from Orchard Lake Road and I-696. A bit north of Lansing.

Drive west on I-96 to exit 122 for M-52/M-43/Stockbridge/Webberville and go north less than a mile to Grand River (M-43) and hang a left to follow M-52. Drive about 1.2 miles and turn north onto M-52. In about 17 miles you will come to Garrison Road. Go past it for about a mile to Bennington Road and hang a left (west). Bennington will end in about 7½ miles at Meridian Road. Turn left (south) and drive for less than a mile to Price Road (462) and turn right (west). Garrison Road is on your left at that corner. The park entrance is a little more than 2 miles on your right.

You can stay on I-96 to US-27 and come into the park from the west side, but that trip is about 9 miles farther.

It's a real gamble on the choice of site. There is a lot of vegitation in between the sites. Most sites a quite shady.

Personal Rating

From Alan: I like this park. It's a little bit far to drive.
