It wasn’t always that way. Once used as a dump of lumber, Kitch-iti-Kipi was discover by Manistique businessman John Bellaire in the 1920’s.

The land becase the Palms Book State Park, and in 2003, a self-operating obersvation raft was constructed to allow a peek into this stocked pond.

The Big Spring is mesmerizing, characterized by it’s bright, emerald color that gives it an almost other-worldly look.

Set deep in the wilderness of the U.P., approximately 10,000 gallons of water per minute gush up from small cracks in limestone lining the bottom of the spring.Connected to nearby Indian Lake by an underground aquifer, the water in the spring is a constant temperature of 45-degree fahrenheit year-round.
