Adventure Park in West Bloomfield Stages Haunted Forest Nights this Month

It's not on Lake St. Clair, but the Adventure Park in West Bloomfield is worth the drive for their "Haunted Forest" nights on weekends throughout October, featuring haunted trails in the forest, trick or-treating and a pumpkin hunt. This family friendly haunt is sure to delight the kids and give parents ample opportunities to photograph their children with the Park's friendly Haunted Forest actors.

During the daylight hours The Adventure Park forest is typically alive with people climbing and zip lining from platform-to-platform in the treetops. However, Fridays-Sundays this month, when the sun goes down, the climbing activity in the trees will be accompanied by a haunted forest on the ground-a frightfully fun adventure of another kind that kids and their families won't want to miss. There will be trick-or-treating for the younger kids on the Halloween themed forest trail.

The sounds of an enchanted forest will play in the background as visitors walk the dimly lit paths adjacent to the five-acre Adventure Park site. As your party proceeds from one chillingly fun station to the next our costumed actors portray fun and frightening creatures of the night. The trail concludes with a fun family style pumpkin hunt with some giant bonus pumpkins for the lucky!

Outdoor Hub : Lake St. Clair Offers Prime Summer Bass Fishing
Although mostly known for smallmouths, Lake St. Clair boasts excellent largemouths, too. Ask 10 bass fishermen to rattle off the best bass lakes in Michigan and if nine of them don’t mention Lake St. Clair right off the bat, there’s something wrong with your sample. Lake St. Clair is and always has been one of the best bass lakes—and not only in Michigan, but in the country. In fact, it’s one of the best bass lakes in two countries, as Michigan shares the 430-square mile Great Lakes connecting water with Ontario, Canada.

Lake St. Clair a great North American fishing destination
The Lake St. Clair fishery - which includes fish, people and habitat - is widely regarded as one of the best in North America, and provides significant social and economic benefits. Fish such as yellow perch (the favorite food fish in the Great Lakes) and walleye represent significant protein sources. Economically, the Michigan waters of the Lake St. Clair system generated $36 million in economic activity in 2004 alone. Fishing is, for many, a lot of fun, and as a recreational fishery, it provides many physical and mental benefits to people. Moreover, a healthy fish population equals a more stable ecosystem.
