You can't go wrong here period. 6 miles of sand beach on Lake Michigan, canoe, tube, home, bike, and more. Miles of trails and completely family friendly. 3 campgrounds and beautiful. We camp here every year, it's a staple. Just go and you'll see why it's so hard to even get into.

The Ludington State Park is amazing! There are so many trails to hike on that offer various types of scenery! There are several different spots that offer places to swim in Lake Michigan and a spot to swim in Hamlin Lake! They have various locations that are equipped with outdoor grills so this is easily a one stop family day... More

I love Ludington State Park, because it's less than half day drive from my home, beach goes on forever and really clean! I walked for hours... Hey the water is not Caribbean blue but what do you expect for fresh water lake in the Midwest when you can't take time to go Oceanside but the water is quite clean and... More

The campground is a nice Michigan state park campground. Free showers and good size campfire rings. There are a few campgrounds and we didnt have any phone service in ours, but we did have service in the others.

This is one of the best beaches there is. The sand is extremely soft and clean. The water is clean and clear. There are nice trails and you can tube down the river that flows into Lake Michigan. Be prepared to deal with crowds if you go because this is a very popular state park. Also has a ice cream,... More

This park is so family oriented. There are bike trails, calm waterways, rolling dunes, miles of beach. Such a beautiful relaxing place. There is a fee to get in. The person at the gate let me in for free though. I took a hike by the lake shore to the lighthouse. So nice.

I've visited the park a few times after taking the cross lake ferry,the badger, and for the first time I stayed at the park. It was a nice clean park that offers plenty of activities. My favorites were the hike to the lighthouse with a tour of the lighthouse and the floating down the river to the lake. It's a... More

Ludington State Park just may be the best state park in Michigan. The beach is beautiful and has a concession stand complete with bathrooms very close by. On the other side of the park there is a small inland lake where you can rent paddle boats, kayaks, canoes and more. On this visit we enjoyed both a canoe rental and... More

Miles of hiking trails, bike trails, huge Lake MI beach with beach house (lots of activies for kids) plus Hamlin lake beach with boat rentals, lazy river, fishing, camp store, clean hot showers and well monitored by park staff. Not to mention the lighthouse walkable by 2 trails still open for tours. I can't imagine any other park being so... More

We have come here in the fall almost every year since childhood. We always stay right on Hamlin Lake and always have such a great time. There is always lots to go do and see. We love the wildlife all over the park. There really is no better campground in the state.
