I approached from the south and east. From the junction of MI-115 and 61, go NW on 115 for 5.7miles and turn left (west) onto 20 Mile Road. Go 4.7 miles and turn right (north) onto 130th. Avenue (Dighton Road). After 2.4 miles turn right into the somewhat obscure driveway signed for Grove Hill Park.
