Historic Charlton Park is a historically oriented local facility and museum in Barry County, Michigan, that sits on 310 acres (1.3 km2) along the Thornapple River.

The village is made up of a number of nineteenth and early-twentieth century structures that have been brought together from around the county to recreate a Michigan village from the turn of the 20th century. Buildings include a lawyer's home, blacksmith shop, bank and insurance office, barber shop, inn and stagecoach stop, Church, carpenter/cooper shop, carriage house, general store, hardware store, school, printshop, cabin, sawmill, and the Hastings Township Hall.

Besides the historic village and museum, there is a swimming beach on the Thornapple River, along which the park is located.
