Suttons Landing Boasts a Scenic Riverwalk
Just off Old US-31, Sutton’s Landing is a charming park along the Pere Marquette River. A unique feature of this park is the handicap accessible riverwalk with high railings, allowing everyone to enjoy this natural habitat. A wooden ramp leads down to the river, where many try their luck at fishing. Once on the riverwalk, go around a sharp bend to the 300 feet of walkway along the south branch of the Pere Marquette River. The walkway has two benches built into it.
A new addition to the area as of August of 2021 is the Pere Marquette Conservation Park, which is located just south of Suttons Landing , bordered by Pere Marquette Lake, Pere Marquette Highway, Iris Rd, and Lakeshore Drive.
Celebrate at Suttons Landing!
The 1800 square-foot covered pavilion at Sutton’s Landing is perfect for large gatherings, such as reunions, birthday and graduation parties, or wedding receptions. There are numerous picnic tables, and restroom facilities available. You may reserve the pavilion by calling (231) 845-1277 or visit pmtwp.org.
