Ionia State Recreation Area has plans for the year which should please equestrians. Heading the list is a change of heart concerning transforming half of the horse campsites to regular full-service sites. The original decision was made for purely financial reasons. The horse camp only fills on three weekends a year, but there is a continual demand for traditional campsites.

However, after communicating with the Michigan Horse Council and Ionia Horse Trails Association the state has decided to back off and re-consider the plan.

Other changes for the year include:
  • A new bridge within the equestrian trail system.
  • Creating an exclusively equestrian group campground
  • Building and designating a 1 1/2-mile horse and cart trail.
  • Improving some equestrian campsites.

Ionia State Recreation Area has 15 miles of horse trail, a 3.5-mile hiking trail and a nine-mile mountain biking trail.
