Meridian- Baseline State Park (michigan)

Recommended Posts

I was looking for some camp sites and came across this "state park", Meridian - Baseline State Park. It seems like it would be a natural benchmark but it's not in the list.

 

I drove out near it but didn't have enough time to really look for it. It's just north of Pleasant Lake Island cache a few miles.

This unique, landlocked park designates the spot where all township, range and section measurements begins for the entire state of Michigan. It is not accessible to the public, but is being preserved for its historic value.

 

That silly public...have got to keep them from ruining everything :(

You are allowed to go and look at the baseline and meridian markers in the park. I just returned from visiting them 4/20/05. If you would like to visit this park, speak with Gary Jones of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources @734-475-8307. The park has only 1 entrance and it is hard to find. The benchmarks are enormous and very unique.

Here is the southern marker (6-17-2010). Northern marker should be found 900 feet to the north, kinda swampy on the north end; did not go. difficult to get to, access through private property off Cooper Road.
