of the Macatawa Park
Macatawa Park is an area of historical cottages dating from the 1800’s. Macatawa was originally American Indian lands which were ceded to the United States in 1821.
Lake Macatawa was officially named in 1935 (formerly Black Lake). Macatawa Park itself was established in 1881 after a group of men acquired & platted land near the Holland harbor for a public park and pleasure resort; the Macatawa Park Association was formed later that year.
Today the Macatawa Park area still is a beautiful peninsula, with dunes dotted by seasonal cottages and occasional year-round residents. Lake Michigan and its beautiful beaches continue to provide peace and beauty to those who take the time to enjoy it.
