Very nice, well-maintained park with marinas alongside, closed to Badger, lots of lake birds, and combination of town, old-industrial, and rustic views. Fully connected by road, sidewalks, and paths to other areas including CG station, lake shore, and breakwater. Interesting sculptures with stories.

There is nothing bad in this tasteful little town. Beautiful, clean beaches, sand dunes, lighthouses, shopping, art, beautiful homes, lots of history, weather was clear and warm.

We visited on a cold early spring day in late March 2015. What an interesting variety of sculptures! Also was able to see the Badger in port.

Very nice park, clean. There is a very nice playground here with a separate play area for small children. There are several statues that all relate to the Ludington area. Also a wonderful place to take a walk. It is bigger than it looks from the parking lot as the park is rather deep. Situated along the water. ..an ideal... More

Agreed with the other ends about this place. It's cute, nice, and fun to visit. Just an all around neat place. Probably even better in the summer.

The park is very well maintained, has a nice play area , amphitheater with restrooms. There is no beach at this park (stearns park has the beach) but it... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of sculptures, a playground for the kids, the marina is right there and it's the site of a lot of free entertainment. This park is a real gem. It's over by the carferry docks so you have to look for it, but it's really nice. Bring your camera!

It is a cute park with a beautiful waterfront. I especially liked walking out on the pier. It is always well kept up and well tended to.

For anyone who enjoys lighthouses and what it symbolizes, this is the haven: There is a set of lighthouses in this park, which is different from most other places that only have a couple of them within close proximity of each other. I started to count these symbols of guidance and hope as they twinkle in the dark, and really... More

Safe and clean, restrooms and snacks, parking and picnic tables, sun or shade, Ludington's beach has it all. Great for families, singles, swimmers, sun worshippers or people watchers. The most beautiful sunset you'll see anywhere. Bring the camera!
