Default Southern MI overnighter for a hammock camper.

I have a trip planned for next weekend in Kalamazoo that I will be riding up and I need a place to hang a hammock for a day. Anyone have any specifics around that area? I've been to Cold Brook but don't remember what the camping was like.

Would prefer if it was free.

I was born and raised there but, haven't been back since 1980. My info is a little out of date.

The only one I know of for sure is Fort Custer State Park. It's located between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. About 15 miles (20 minutes) from the center of Kalamazoo. If you have lots of problems finding something PM me and I'll check with my son who lives in Kalamazoo. He's also a Harley rider.
