Clear Lake Education Center is a place for people of all ages and abilities to come and connect with the natural world. The programs we offer focus on environmental sciences, cultural history, natural resource careers, personal growth and team building.
Clear Lake is the perfect secluded spot to get in touch with the natural world. Wildlife abounds with loons, wolves, bears and an abundance of deer. Currently Clear Lake Education Center is open from late April through late October.
Leave the bustle of the world behind as you reach the quiet setting that comprises Clear Lake's 22 acres. Located on the Hiawatha National Forest, 20 miles south of Munising, the Center is the only occupant on the shores of the beautiful waters of Clear Lake.
More than 100,000 young men worked in Michigan's forests during the Great Depression and lived in barracks like this.See how!
A visit to Clear Lake Education Center is a step back in time. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the camp in the late 1930's. The facilities, nestled in a northern hardwoods forest adjacent to Clear Lake, blend a rustic feel with modern conveniences.
