A Riverwalk for Everyone
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, allowing everyone to enjoy this natural habitat. A wooden ramp leads down to the river, where many try their luck at fishing.
The 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 are available. You may reserve the pavilion by calling (231) 845-1277.
From Ludington, take Old US-31 across the Pere Marquette River and turn right on Iris Road. Sutton’s Landing is immediately to your right, across from the PM Town Hall.
