We came to Buttersville to visit the Pere Marquette Memorial and then to walk the beach and look for driftwood. We were very glad we did! It’s obvious that those camping or choosing to come here are able to relax and enjoy the beach without as many people as Ludington. I’m not sure about the private portions of the beach... More

I had read several reviews about Buttersville Park; but when we visited, I was disappointed with what we found. It's a great location, but the sites are very small and looks like about half are taken by seasonal campers.

Great beach just down the road from our rental. Not crowded, friendly people. good parking. Being near the cottage was a plus on the day we decided to go back to the house, fix lunch and picnic on the beach since it was a great beach day!

Don't bother -- this park is too small and requires a circuitous drive on the South side of Ludington.

Just down the way from White Pine Village. No facilities here, but a cute little beach to enjoy the water.

This is a very nice beach off the beaten path. Does not have the restroom or snack bar of the other beach. Very nice views and sand
