Hart is located approximately six miles inland from Lake Michigan, half way between Muskegon & Ludington on the western side of the state. This close proximity to Lake Michigan gives visitors and residents the opportunity to enjoy the natural resources of the great outdoors.
We are a four seasons community where you can enjoy spring bike rides and hikes, summer walks on the beach, fall color tours or winter snowmobiling and ice fishing. You can always find something to do or see in the “Hart” of Oceana County at any time of the year!
John Gurney Park is on the shore of
Hart Lake and is the spot where you enter the
Hart-Montague Trail. One of the best bicycle
trails in all of Michigan, it runs through downtown Hart
all the way to Montague.
Michigan Historical Commissioner Tom Truscott dedicated a Michigan Historical Marker honoring both auto tourist camps - popular with early-20th-century travelers - and Hart's John Gurney Park at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17. Part of an ongoing effort to promote tourism in communities along the old West Michigan Pike (US-31), the marker was located near the entrance arch of the park, at 300 N Griswold St. in Hart.
