Kitchitikipi – “Big Springs” Palms Book State Park Thompson Michigan
Two hundred feet across, the forty foot deep Kitchitikipi is Michigan’s largest Spring. With over an amazing 10,000 gallons a minute gushing from its fissures in the underlying limestone, this crystal clear attraction is absolutely amazing and mysterious. The flow continues throughout the year at a constant 45 degree Fahrenheit. By means of a self-operated & tethered observation raft, visitors are guided to vantage points overlooking fascinating underwater features and mysteries. Ancient tree trunks, lime encrusted branches and fat trout appear suspended in nothingness as they slip through crystal waters far below. Clouds of sand kept in constant motion by gushing waters create ever-changing forms, a challenge to the imagination of young and old alike.
