We camped at the park this past weekend. A little disappointed with everything but the weather. I don't think we'll come back again. Beach: Decent size. Fine sand. Clean. Great view. Close to campsite. Too many flies that follow and BITE people. They seemed to love sunscreen and bug spray. Can't get rid of them at all. We lasted less... More

Muskegon State Park is located on the north side of Muskegon Channel. It includes a campground and a wonderful, huge beach on Lake Michigan. There is also a smaller beach on Muskegon Lake, if you are camping, I like to go to this beach because you can park your car right next to the beach. There is a nice bathhouse... More

The beaches are kept so clean and beautiful. I look forward to water temperatures in the 70's and love the days when the waves are churning. I have had so many memorable experiences with my grandchildren at the beach and appreciate having it so close to home. On a nice sunny and warm day a person would be hard pressed... More

This is a magical place with lots of place to hike or just hang out at the beach. A family tradition to climb the sugar bowl. Kids like to climb the sandy front and run down. Hikers take the climb through the woods.

The View and the Private Sandy Beach alone is worth the visit for this quiet little campground. We stayed two nights, as new campers we forgot our cooler outside much to the delight of the local Raccoon gang. However the facility, the showers and plumed restrooms are free and exceptionally clean. We had no concerns and everyone there was very... More

This park is fairly large. The park has two campgrounds and a winter sports complex with a famous luge track. The beach is huge and many various ships can be seen going through the channel on a daily basis. The bathrooms were clean, but the sites can be a bit cramped depending on which you choose.

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.
