Rawson's King Mill County Park is located Northwest of Leonidas on King Road and was donated by Eston and Lydia Rawson who restored the mill and created this favorite area on Nottawa Creek. Spend the day exploring everything this park has to offer: the scenic dam and waterfalls, the historic mill, and over 7 acres of bridges, paths and gardens over 2 islands. There is ample space for picnics, fishing, and relaxation. Because of its unique beauty, Rawson's is a favorite spot for photographers and nature lovers. Rawson's King Mill is a idyllic setting for an outdoor wedding - recite your vows under the pergola set next to the creek with the sounds cascading water in the background!
