Sleepy Hollow State Park is a state park located in Ovid Township and Victor Township, near Laingsburg, Michigan. Located at 7835 East Price Road, the park contains many miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails as well as a medium-sized man-made lake known as Lake Ovid. A dam located in the northwest corner of the lake flooded the area which created the relatively shallow body of water. Several islands of varying size provide sanctuary for a variety of marine bird species including Canada Geese, swans, Blue Heron and others.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources provides the following summary of the park's offerings:
"Sleepy Hollow State Park, located in Clinton County 20 minutes north of Lansing, contains more than 2,600 acres (11 km2) and is situated on Price Road off from US-27 near St. Johns and Laingsburg. A river winds its way through the woods and fields of the park, and Lake Ovid is nestled in the middle of it all. Lake Ovid, covering 410 acres (1.7 km2), was developed by damming the Little Maple River. The park offers year-round opportunity for recreation".
Several islands of varying size provide sanctuary for a variety of marine bird species including Canada Geese, Swans, Blue Heron and others. Lake Ovid covers around 410 acres (1.7 km2) and provides habitat for Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Rock Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, Muskellunge, Northern Pike and other freshwater species.
Over 228 different animal species can be found in Sleepy Hollow State Park, from the Blue Jay to the Eastern Bluebird. The rarely recorded Bonaparte's Gull or Bald Eagle also have been sighted.
The park provides landing access for small boats on the west side of Lake Ovid and boaters are limited to no-wake throughout the waterways. Canoes and pontoon boats are available to rent from the park upon request.
