Hello! Our family will be heading up north to the Saint Helen / Roscommon area for a vacation. I haven't been out that way in over 20 years, so I'm wondering what it's like out there now. I remember it being very secluded and beautiful. I remember going to Deer Acres (which I heard is closed now). Basically just looking for any updates in the area, what it's like now, things to see or do that don't involve water sports or boating. Where to go for groceries or out to eat also. Disappointed about Deer Acres closing, that would have been perfect. An hour or so drive for seeing sights is also okay if you know of anything. We are nature people, if that helps. Thank you in advance!

If you're into nature check out Hartwick Pines State Park. It is a great place to see an old growth forest in the area.

Roscommon is beautiful. Not sure what there is to do other than camp and swim in the lakes nearby, though.

Yeah pretty remote in that area, pretty much a lot of camping/cabining, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, relaxing.

In no particular order:

Canoeing:
Rifle River
Cut River
Au Sable River

Hiking:
Ogemaw Hills Pathway
Red Pine Pathway
Hartwick Pines State Park

Tawas City/East Tawas is a little over an hour away on Lake Huron, has a cute but small little downtown area with some local shops and restaurants, is on the lake, and the nearby state park has some nice views, sandy areas, and can hike out to the lighthouse.
