Rugg Dam Pond

The Rugg Dam Pond Natural Area between Kalkaska and Rapid City is a beautiful little spot to visit in summertime. It offers a tranquil pond surrounded by deep woods, plus two different outflows from the dam — this one through a cement channel and another through a gigantic steel pipe. Just below this outflow, to the right, is a very interesting tangle of cedar trees with exposed roots.
