Love Creek winds its way through this rolling 200-acre natural area outside of Berrien Springs, Michigan. Six miles of hiking trails provide access to a variety of habitats, including a mature Beech-Maple forest with spectacular spring wildflowers.
The Berrien County Parks Commission's naturalist service is based here and activities are available throughout the year.
Love Creek offers outstanding cross-country skiing opportunities with groomed trails and ski rentals available. The Fields & Forests Bike Trail also provides cyclists with access to a 4.5 mile beginning to intermediate level mountain bike trail from spring through fall and this winter we'll be grooming a 3 mile fat tire Snow Bike trail!
Open all year. See Love Creek News at top of this page for current building hours. Trails are always open during daylight hours.
The daily entry fee is $3.00 per vehicle for Berrien County residents. $5.00 for non-residents.
Annual Park Permits are available for park entry, cross country skiing, and winter fat bike trail use.

Love Creek County Park’s Trillium Room is an inviting space for your next event, meeting, or gathering.
Visitors are required to stay on trails and picking or removing wildflowers or other plants is not permitted.
Leashed dogs are permitted on trails when snow conditions do not exist. (Trails are closed to dogs and hiking when there is enough snow to groom trails for cross-country skiing and fat biking, as footprints damage the trails.) Check Love Creek News at the website tab above for current trail access conditions.
Alcohol is prohibited at all Berrien County Parks locations.
