We traveled from SE MI to checkout park for future camping trips, staff at guard house said the park is "closed" concept even with the Recreation Passport, that we would need to come back after Labor Day to check out the park. We explained our situation, she was stern, no apologies, told us to turn around and exit. So we... More

A nice little hike to the beach area from where we parked, primarily through the woods and marked trails. All the kids wee able to easily maneuver the trails (ages 4-10). We got to run down the sand dunes which was fun for the kids. We stayed away from the crowded beach area and had our area to ourself. The... More

Went hiking at MSP with my teenage nieces and we had a great time. The trail markers were a little sketchy for us but we used a compass app on the phone and did great! Some of the trails are gravel instead of dirt and it is handicapped accessible (lower grade hill options for wheelchairs). Visited a nice dune pond,... More

Beautiful state park with lots of room to spread out. They also have camping facilities, clean restrooms & lovely dunes to see and climb if desired.

Stayed 4 nights with the family tent camping in the Lake Michigan campground and we had a great time. Negatives: not many level campsites, scenic drive is pretty close to the campsites, very sandy, some campsites are wet. Positives: tall trees provide shelter, very short walk to the beach, sand dunes for the kids to run on, ice cream shop... More

Trip would not of been complete without visiting here. The beaches go on and on. They have camping, trails, dunes, enough to keep a family busy for days. Huge bathroom/shelter area on the beach itself. Warning flags for riptide conditions. Stopped at the scenic overlook and was pleasantly surprised with the view and history of the building.

The Lake Michigan campground (not channel) is amazing. Our lot was only about a two minute walk and we were on the shores of the beautiful Lake Michigan. The lots have tall trees so it feels like you are properly camping (I've been to some with not many trees), the bathrooms were nice, and the scenery on the lake was... More

The Muskegon State Park has a large variety of things to do! Our group of 13 spent 3 days/2 nights camping at the organization sites. During our visit we hiked to Lost Lake, visited Snug Harbor, viewed an Eagles nest, hiked the Dune Ridge trail, went fishing with the Park Rangers on the Muskegon Channel, visited the Block House and...

great boardwalk to get closer to the shore with less trudging through the sand. I have an older parent who has mobility issues so this was very helpful.

We stayed four nights at the Channel Campground in Muskegon (MSP) State Park. Someone should give us medals of valor for hanging in that long. We knew that MSP would not be a place for camping purists (which we're not); we knew the sites would not be rustic, i.e., in the back of beyond; and we certainly knew that it... More
