Overview

Onaway State Park is located on the southeast shore of beautiful Black Lake in Presque Isle County. The park encompasses 158 acres of rugged but picturesque land, including sand cobblestone beaches, large unique rock out-croppings and a diverse variety of trees. You may observe all these natural features by hiking the park's three-mile nature trail. The campground, set among virgin white pines, offers solitude and serenity and plenty of family fun.

One of the Division of Natural Resource's oldest state parks, it was acquired in 1920 from Presque Isle County and private donors. The park was dedicated in 1921. It is located in an area that was once frequented by the Chippewa Indians.
