Sleepy Hollow State Park is part of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and contains more than 2,600 acres. 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, was developed by damming the Little Maple River. The park offers year-round opportunity for recreation. Lake Ovid is a popular fishing destination. Major species include large mouth bass, bluegill, crappie, perch, channel catfish and muskellunge. A modern boat launch is available year round. Boat rentals are available during the summer months. Lake Ovid is a ‘no wake’ lake.
