Amazed on what we found here. The winter sports complex had every snow sport: cross country skiing, ice skating, sledding, snowshoeing and luge. All the supplies can be rented but your personal snow suit. They had fires set up outside. Our son did the luge lessons and then had about 6 runs in 2hours. The luge goes up to 30miles per hour, wear an old coat if you can as those speeds can damage the sleeve. Plus this can be dangerous as one person in our group did break their leg. I think it's best to do this across many days such that you can withstand the physical activities. There were groups doing winter camping and there are a variety of hotels in the Muskegon area. It is cold as it's on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. No nearby resturants, need to go back into town.

This is a beautiful location located close to Muskegon. When I visited here the weather was not great with high winds and rain, but that did not stop my from exploring the shoreline and making an attempt out to the wave break light on the north side of the harbor. If you are planning on doing some hiking I recommend doing some cardio a month or so before this trip because the sand makes even the flattest trails tiresome. If you want beautiful pictures it is best to visit this park during the off season when its not as warm out.

Our Michigan State Parks are gems that we should all support and appreciate!! On a recent day trip to Muskegon, we spent a couple hours at this state park. Checked out the Blockhouse, which should have more historical context provided. The view was nice but trees in front are so tall now that they obscure the view of the lake. We just wanted to sit and relax and enjoy the water and nature. Seems there is a lot of beach, but no grass for picnicking and relaxing along the lake. Finally found a place near the channel and just chilled out for a while, watching boats and people and a momma bird who kept flying in to feed her three young ones snug in a nest in a picnic shelter. On our way out, we passed the north campground which seemed overly crowded during these COVID times. Nobody wearing masks at the ice cream place just outside the entrance so we did not stay.

This park was a fun place to visit. There wasn't a lot of people there since school had started most places, so we had most of it to ourselves. Definitely glad I was able to go. The hiking trails were also worth seeing but beware the sand can be hot!

I love coming to this beach because it’s vast enough to spread out from large groups and have some beach time to yourself. The beach is clean and quite beautiful. This applies to weekdays when I’d give it a 5 on weekends it would go down to a 2 or 3.. I’ve had horrid experiences on weekends when boaters come in park close to the shoreline, hang out on their boats with their attached playpads for their kids to play on, play loud music and basically monopolize the beach. Who wants to swim around a bunch of boats letting off gas fumes? I’m not sure if this is due to covid laxness but it does not seem right in a public park space or what the beach is intended for.

Been to winter sports park a few times, this time the wife of 40 years and I found something we could do together. First time in our lives we snow shoed. 1.5 km was fine, good exercise. She wants to do it again!

Good place for camping except the campsites are tiny. Definitely geared more toward the RV crowd versus the old tent campers like us. They don’t have any kind of store for supplies like some other state parks I’ve visited but they sell ice and firewood at the ranger station.

First time here to check out the park (drove 120 miles). No gate so no cost but also couldn’t find a map so we had not idea where the trails were. No restrooms open or found so we only drove around and checked it out. Very beautiful with snow. We picked a foggy day so couldn’t see all of the coastline but excited to come back. The campground looks amazing.

Boy, early September camping is excellent! During the week it's so quiet. Warm enough during the day to enjoy the beach and cool eat night for a fire and good sleeping. We come here yearly

I just got back from a most wonderful stay at Muskegon Park!! This is my new favorite vacation spot!! The beach is so clean and clear waters!! Very peaceful! And nice facilities! My only advice is, take bug spray! The flies are insane!
