L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, used to summer on Lake Michigan near Holland, Michigan at Castle Park. An unincorporated community, Castle Park is a collection of cottages and a massive German-style castle that was built in 1894. The castle was an inspiration for Baum as he wrote about the Emerald City of Oz.

Today, the castle serves as a library and occasional bingo hall for Castle Park residents.
