This might be my favorite beach out of all in the area. The sand is the same as the others, but there was just something about this park that I liked. I would find a better route to get there though than the 25mph speed limit thru part of the town. But that's minor and related to me being a... More

We were short on time so we visited just the blockhouse and the channel walkway. Lots of good exercise and plenty to see on this,day. It was a cold August day so there were not a lot of people out. Lots to see and do, people have been coming here for decades......

My boyfriend and I just moved up to Big Rapids for school, so we decided to go explore the near-by area and go camping in Muskgeon. However, we were not impressed. First of all, yes there are plenty of sites, but they are quite literally right on top of each other. In fact, our neighbors stole our picnic table before... More

Such a great park, mainly just hung out at the beach, it was so clean (water & beach) Not overcrowded at all! The dunes were nice to climb & look over the water!

Nice beach at this park but the facilities are not so nice. Broken faucets and dirty toilets. Plenty of parking.

We had a blast!!! We have been to state parks where the cleanliness wasn't to good but our visit here was totally different. Patrolled often and very polite personal. Young lady was having an medical issue and the staff was very quick to respond and get the authorities on the scene in a timely manner. This was our second trip... More

On our way to Michigan's Adventure Park, we stopped at the free beach access. Almost no one there in the morning. Beach was really clean and large. Scenic drive was nice as well.

Do not miss a chance to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan from the state park. Seriously, don't be late and don't take too many pictures. Just sit in the dunes with someone you love and breathe and soak it in.

Went to the Channel Campground for a weekend. Nice location, a small sand beach for the kids and the channel itself is quite a nice site to watch the ships pass. We had a campsite (no. 14) with a sand base that was not so good. I get that it's a waterfront location but how can you give someone a... More
