The beach is easy access with a boardwalk leading almost to the water. You can walk to the canal from the beach area and watch the boats come into the marina. It is an easy walk but I would encourage walkers to wear shoes or sandals. The restrooms are not the cleanest but I haven't too many beach ones that... More

We stayed here for along weekend and loved it! There was so much to do hike, luge, swim(Lake Michigan side). We stayed in a tent and were very comfortable. The bathrooms, and showers were clean and very private. We would visit again in a heartbeat!

We vacationed in Muskegon State Park (channel side) last week. It was pretty disappointing, compared to other state parks we have camped in. We were sleeping in a tent and did sleep comfortably. Our site was a decent size but all of the sites could have been MUCH bigger if they maintained the weeds/tree limbs growing everywhere. It was out... More

Very nice beach area. Great place for sunset pictures and family fun. Only wish they would have info on the Fort that was there.

There are so many things to do if you camp here. Hiking, swimming, relaxing, luge, amusement parks and so much more is nearby. This is a regular spot for us to visit with friends.

Stopped in to visit both the Channel and Lake Michigan Campgrounds. We found the Channel not to our liking as sites had some areas of very loose sand, tightly spaced, older bath house, and it also had quite a walk to the day use area and beach The Lake Michigan Campground was nicer during our walk but the area with...

This is a beautiful and very clean park along Lake Michigan. So much to do here! There is a building representative of what the CCC built in the Roosevelt era, camping, fishing, hiking, swimming (with a beautiful beach), and that's only summertime activities....they have a winter area, too!

We camped over Father's Day weekend. The place was completely full, but it was quiet, which was good. Bathrooms are not the best, but still useable. Our site was alright. Large enough, smallish parking pad. A lot of leaves, ankle deep, around the fire pit. Spent some time sweeping the area. I don't think the chipmunks liked that very much,... More

Keep your restroom expectations low. Very dated, hard to keep clean and need full replacement. The park offers full shade and full sun sites with many varieties in between. Love the Channel Pier and Muskegon Lake access. More spacious and shady sites along woth newer restrooms in the Lake Michigan campground.

We spent a weekend here early in the season. There are two sections of sites: Those on the channel, which are more RV friendly and don't have direct beach access; and those on Lake MI, which seem more tent friendly, have direct beach access, and have more tree cover. We had a site in the Lake MI campground with friends... More
