I grew up in Vandercook lake in the 60's and 70's, spent alot of time at the lake and used to listen to the old timers tell stories about the park there, they told me at one time it was called Wolverine Park. I lived in the subdivision behind the church on Francis and Probert road, thats where the old Girl Scout camp was, we knew every inch of every trail that went thru the camp.
We spent our summers terrorizing the poor girls who would come there to spend a week. From what I remember there was a mill on the creek there at Francis and Probert , on the opposite side of where that old closed bait shop is (or was) not sure if the shop is still there, have not been thru there in 15 years. I have collected cards from Hagues Park for years and have most everything from the interurban garage in jackson, to the photo shop souvineers at the park, anyone remember when the interurban tracks used to run down the middle of Francis? that's why that street has a grass median in it.
