In Davison Township, Lake Callis Recreation Complex sits on 35 acres of land featuring a variety of amenities. The man-made lake and beach, boasting the same name as the park, sits at the center of this family-friendly recreation area.
The area is named after Bob Callis, a long-time Davison community resident and educator who envisioned a place for the community to enjoy outdoor activities; and, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy — some are more unique than others.
1. Learn how to paddleboard
The Davison Township Parks & Recreation hosts paddleboard classes, for those who are new to the water activity, and other fun classes such as paddleboard yoga for those who are more advanced. Don’t have a paddleboard? Don’t worry. Visitors can rent one for $10 for the first hour and $5 each additional hour.
2. Catch a movie
Throughout the summer Davison Township Parks & Recreation hosts Movies at the Beach. Most Friday nights, visitors can enjoy a movie projected on the big screen.
3. Attend a food truck festival
On the third Friday of the month, food trucks, live music and activities start before Movies at the Beach.
4. Enjoy a game of volleyball
Lake Callis Recreation Complex holds six NCAA rated sand volleyball courts. The courts are available for leagues, rental or use by availability.
5. Make a Splash
Not only does Lake Callis have a man-made beach perfect for swimming, the complex also boasts a “Dash-n-Splash” pad featuring sprinklers, waterfalls and a giant water dumping bucket.
