A half-mile stretch of graceful, towering willows form a Tunnel of Trees over Main Street at the intersection of M 55, just east of US-31 in Eastlake. To locals, this section of Main Street is better known as Bullfrog Highway, owing its nickname to the seasonal chorus of croaking bullfrogs from the adjacent Big Manistee River Peters
Bayou area. Penny Park, recently added to Manistee County’s Explore the Shores program, can be accessed off nearby Gillespie St., with a new boat launch and universally accessible playground. Improvements to the 38-site campground are planned as well.
