Where is Fort Custer State Park?
Fort Custer Recreation Area is a 3,003-acre state park located between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, Michigan. The area features lakes, the Kalamazoo River, over 25 miles of multi-use trails, second growth oak barrens and dry-mesic southern forests.
First of all, Fort Custer Recreation Area is a state park, not a national one. It is "man-made" in the sense that most of the recreational improvements were built by humans. The lakes, however, were present when the land was taken for military training. Interestingly, no fort was ever built on the land.
