Rifle River Recreation Area [Wildlife Viewing Area] - Michigan Department of Natural Resources (989) 473-2258.  Closest Towns: Lupton, Rose City.  Water is a big attraction at Rifle River. There are more than ten miles of streams and river here, as well as 10 lakes and ponds. This site also showcases a wide variety of habitat types, including upland hardwood and pine forest, open grassland, lowland forest, cedar swamp, bog, marsh, and open water. Fourteen miles of hiking/biking trails begin at the campground; many of these trails are groomed for skiers.  Excellent opportunity to view unique waterfowl at this site. The huge trumpeter swan, Michigan’s largest bird, may be seen on any of the lakes. Trumpeters were released here by the Department of Natural Resources as a part of a reintroduction program. Loons usually nest on Grebe Lake in the spring. Please view both of these rare birds from a distance and do not disturb them, especially during breeding season. A scenic overlook from the Lodge Hill will delight viewers with a bird’s eye view of the area. In May, the trail offers wonderful wildflower viewing. Look for Indian paintbrush, cardinal flower, several types of lady’s slippers, and others. Stop at the headquarters for maps and other information.
