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.
