      The Gladwin County Recreation Area, at 1365 Shaw Rd. or Pratt Lake Road; known in its younger days as the "Sportsmen's Club". It contains 160 acres with 5 miles of mountain bike trails; also hiking trails, and groomed cross-country ski trails. There are seasonal picnic sites. There is also a .5 mile asphalt walking trail that is handicapped accessible. The lodge and grounds of the 'sportsmen's club' are now available for seasonal rental, thru October 31, for that special party, wedding reception, reunion, or what-have-you.
