This is the Block House, a scenic lookout originally made of left-over (and already at that time antique) timber in the Great Depression. It was burned to the ground by kids in 1962 and rebuilt, only to be set on fire several more times by arsonists.
The photos show it refinished in recent years, albeit there is severe fire-damage in one part where the hole is covered over with a thick, wide board.
One can clearly the lake and state park from the small windows, which mimic a frontier fort.
We only visited for a short time today here in my town of Muskegon, but we had lots of fun with my dog and taking pictures of people taking pictures.
