Looking for a break from crowded beaches? Than this is the Lake Michigan experience for you. After a lovely wooded walk you are treated to a beautiful beach. Don't miss climbing the stairs for some unique dune views and visit the nature center to see just how these dunes were formed. Lots of wooded campsites with several trails running through... More

My wife and I always look forward to going here. This is where I proposed to her. Clean beach, beautiful views, and well maintained facilities. Not sure why people are always so excited for the busy beach at Grand Haven when they can drive a little farther north and find this beautiful place.

I love Hoffmaster. The trails are so quiet and beautifully shaded. Lovely way to spend part of the day. Beaches are much less crowded than other places, and very clean. With lake levels high like they are right now, a lot of the sand is covered, but beaches still nice. We have also skied in the winter, which is challenging,... More

For whatever reason you are around Grand Haven... Well, be adventurous and instead of settling for Grand Haven State Park (which is a CITY PARK incidentally located by Lake Michigan!) drive 12 min north to Hoffmaster State Park. There are awesome trails and dunes, but if you want to park and swim, this is your spot: a taste of wilderness... More

This park has a great mix of beach and woods to walk in. My husband and I parked in one of the lots and walked along the beach first and then back to our car through the woods. it was very clean and peaceful. Great place for nature lovers and beach lovers.

It's all of the best of the western Lakeshore rolled into one. There's camping, beautiful beaches and hiking trails. The dunes are fabulous and great for hiking in wooded areas that lead to a spectacular view of lake at the top of the dune. The nature center gives information about all trails, wildlife and there are guides available to give... More

I love hiking in the moss lined trails but they are super badly marked. Bring a charged cell phone and GPS the well worn path you are on my not be the Homestead Trail.
