Friends of Clare County Parks and Recreation is
an independent non-profit agency, that supports the improvement of
recreational areas throughout the county. We work closely together
with Clare County Parks & Recreation Commission, as our common mission
is to improve recreational resources throughout the county.
Clare County is an outdoorsman’s paradise, with over 50,000 acres of
State Forests, 300 miles of rivers, 28 miles of snowmobile trails, and
over 20 public access lakes. It is the mission of Friends of the Clare
County Parks & Recreation to make resident and visitors aware of the
tremendous number of recreational resources and activities available
throughout the county. We have worked hard to bring new activities,
improve existing resources and make community events known to the
public. Please take an opportunity to enjoy some of the great
recreational resources and community activities occurring throughout
