Welcome to Bath
Fifteen miles northeast of Lansing is the community of Bath, the perfect place to get away from it all. The Michigan Wildlife Conservancy protects 259 acres of beautiful Michigan wilderness, including miles of trails to hike, bike, or bird watch. If you're feeling competitive, test your skill on the archery range or challenge a friend to a round of disc golf. End your day at the Wildlife Pub inside the cedar log clubhouse to enjoy food, drink, and company on the patio overlooking wetlands and woods–as the name suggests, you're bound to spot some wildlife. A naturally beautiful area makes for beautiful golf courses, and Bath is no exception. Hone your game at Hawk Hollow Golf Course or try your hand at Eagle Eye's island par 3. And when it's that time of year, visit one of the local tree farms to bring holiday spirit into your home.
Take a hike without taking a hike.
Bath is a natural sanctuary in mid-Michigan, meaning you can experience natural wildlife and wonder without hauling it way up north. What's better than having nature in your own backyard?
