COLOMA, Mich. (AP) — A rural amusement park popular for decades in southwestern Michigan is on the auction block.
Visitors could pet animals, ride a Ferris wheel or train and listen to music at Deer Forest in Coloma. The 25-acre site in Berrien County is for sale, along with many buildings that are in rough shape but still standing.
Rick Levin of Rick Levin & Associates says many people have called him with fond memories of Deer Forest. He says it might be a good spot for new homes.
The suggested opening bid is $450,000, though the property had been valued at $3.2 million.
The deadline for the sealed bid auction is Oct. 14.
