This state park and beach is the best kept secret in Muskegon. While most others visit Pere Marquette Park or go south to Grand Haven, this beach is rarely crowded, and a beautiful place to be in the summer.

This is the only public luge run in the US! The staff is knowledgeable and gives you the basic knowledge you need to enjoy this sport. Then you just gotta do it! Awards ceremony, including medals, puts the finishing touches on an unique classy experience.

There are two camping areas within the park. The Channel Campground is bordered by Muskegon Lake, Muskegon Lake Channel, and Lake Michigan. The Lake Michigan Campground, is of course, on Lake Michigan.

Muskegon State Park is a great place to go year round and we have been there several times. However this was our first time during the winter and had the most amazing time. We spent the night in the yurt. I highly recommend this experience. The park provides plenty of wood to keep the wood burner running day and night.... More

Muskegon State Park is a great place to go year around. I most recently went again this winter for the ice skating trail and hockey rinks. There are about 3 or 4 separate rinks where impromptu hockey games will pick up as well as just basic skating. There is also a few trails through the woods that are iced over... More

I visit this State Park often in the summer. Lake Michigan being the primary reason. The beach area and sand dunes are breath taking. The water is fresh and you always have privacy. Id recommend camping for the weekend. Muskegon has so many local attractions that you can swim all day and visit the town at night. Also not to... More

There are two small cabins in the state park and a YURT (round, double-walled tent) right on the trails!

I could go on and on about how beautiful this place is and how there are hot showers that are kind of dirty feeling and sandy, take your flip flops into the shower. You can't go wrong w/ picking this as a campsite....but enough has been said about all of that in the surrounding reviews. What I want to let... More

Went for a short visit. Was very clean and beautiful. The boats were beautiful too. People who were fishing and walking around were very friendly and water was blue. Light house was neat too.
