ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Stagecoach Stop in the Irish Hills
The question I hear a lot is "Is Stagecoach Stop open or closed?"
According to an article last year (July 18, 2018), it's open from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. It features the old cowboy shoot-outs, an old sawmill, panning for gold, hayride, pool, petting zoo, playground, fire pit, hayrides, arcade, gift & souvenir shop, and plenty of camping available.
The roller coaster mine ride is gone, as is the stagecoach drive through the woods where a band of outlaws hold you up.
Stagecoach Stop opened in 1965 and competed with Frontier City, which had been open since 1960 on M-50 south of US-12. Frontier City closed in 1974 and Stagecoach Stop closed in 2007. But it's been changed somewhat since then and is open during the summer and around Halloween. The Cowboy Creek Lodge was added years ago for those who desire to spend the night.
Take a drive over there...it might just be what you need to spark the kid in you again.
