Dense hardwoods create habitat for Flycatchers, Vireo, Woodpeckers, Ruffed Grouse, Wood Thrushes, Veery, Nuthatches, Blue Jays, etc. Paths open to the shoreline and a wide assortment of waterfowl can be seen including: Heron, Ducks, Double-crested Cormorant, Canada Geese, Sandpipers, Yellowlegs, Gulls, Terns and Swans. Bald Eagles fish from trees and large rocks along the shore.South Point is an excellent site for the spring and fall passerine migration, many species hunker down in the stunted trees and shrubs near the end of the point.

The park is owned by the State of Michigan. A DNR motor vehicle permit or recreational passport is required for entry to this park. The Friends of Negwegon group has been working to create trails with board walk over the wettest areas.
