Description: ioniastaterecreationareaSessions Lake is located in the center of the Ionia State Recreation Area. Located in Ionia County at the corner of David Highway and Jordan Lake Road, Sessions Lake is only 3 Ĺ miles north of exit 64, off I96.

Developed in 1983, this 4500 acre state park has something for everyone with itís lightly rolling terrain and a nice mix of open land, hardwoods and pine plantations. The centerpiece of the park is the 140 acre Sessions Lake with depths of 40 feet. This wonderful manmade lake was stocked with rainbow trout, brown trout, catfish, bluegill, crappies, walleye, largemouth bass and small mouth bass. The no wake lake is just perfect for the serious fisherman. A nice paved boat launch with plenty of parking and vault style toilet is located on the south end of the lake.

All kinds of trails are found in this park. A wooded lake trail of 3.65 miles circles around the lake, crossing streams and thru the woods, making it perfect for hiking or cross-country skiing in the winter months. There are also designated snowmobile trails when there are four or more inches of snow on the ground.

sessionslakeThere are fifteen miles of equestrian trails, complemented by an equestrian campground consisting of 49 sites with electric. Horses are allowed only on the designated fifteen miles of trails. A second campground is found within the area with 100 sites with electric, complete with a modern toilet/shower building.

For the mountain biker, there are 9 miles of trails between Riverside Drive and the riverfront of the Grand River. And a favorite of mine, a dog trial area, that has become very popular with regional clubs.
