Very nice for winter camping. Although bathrooms are NOT open, only pit toilets. Water is available at the bathrooms & electric at campsites. We love this campground for the hiking trails......a chilly hike to the beautiful lighthouse (be dressed warm, it's almost a mile walk) wonderful trail along both sides of the river & also up to the top of...

I visited with my family in the Fall. This is a very nice clean state park, and the campground looked good although we didn't stay there. It's certainly a popular place to be! We hiked the Lost Lake Trail and enjoyed it immensely. Our six year old daughter found many things to keep it interesting, and it was very scenic.... More

We are campers, and this is one of the nicest State Patks in Michigan. It is clean, spacious and the amenities - bike trails, nature programs, camp store, hiking trails, etc. are top notch. The views from the top of the elevated trails are spectacular. The lighthouse is very picturesque, and the docents are knowledable.

My favorite state park to camp at. The hiking trails are beautiful, be sure to check them out. Walk to the lighthouse too, and enjoy fantastic sunsets on Lake Michigan. Take a kayak out onto Hamlin Lake, and go tubing down the river into Lake Michigan. Definitely recommend!

Dear Michigan, just can't get over that Ludington State Park has a sand mining operation inside its boundaries. Michiganders, WAKE UP! Our Michigan coastline is irreplaceable. Shame on Michigan for allowing this to happen. It ruined my trip.

This State park is extraordinary in every way. The beach on Lake Michigan is the best in the state. The many trails and views are truly inspiring and enjoyable. Camping is awesome at this park. The new changing station/building at the beach is well appointed and conveniently located. If you want a relaxing vacation this is the place to go!

We used this 5 night stop as the main destination in our recent 2 week round trip from NH and it did not disappoint. The sites are nice, a little close to your neighbor but it can be managed. The camp store was very convenient and the beach was incredible. We are already figuring out how to get back here... More

This park is absolutely the best in the state! The camp store is well stocked and priced well. Oh and the best part they take plastic :) Bathrooms cleaned daily and when we went no matter the time of day you had a HOT shower. Trails are clearly marked. Tons of natural beauty all around. I do recommend taking a... More

This is by far the most beautiful state park I've been too! The sunsets and lighthouses are amazing. One downfall is that the part of the campground we were in was pretty crowded and felt like we were on top of each other but other than that it was very nice!!!
