The beach area of Buttersville Park is dog-friendly (Note: the City beach and state park do not allow dogs on their beaches). We did not visit or stay at the park itself (which has RV sites and, I believe, campsites) as we were only there for the beach. Oh, the beach - our black lab, Gunner, thoroughly enjoyed it -...

This is a great beach that everyone would enjoy cruising to. It's near White Pine Village and has reasonably easy access to the beach below. My daughters love rushing down the dunes, but we take the longer path up because it has a slight incline.

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.
