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.

I drove in on the North Scenic Drive and I have to say, it was a great road! It winds through the woods and at times, runs right up to the lake. I stopped and checked out the Blockhouse, which is a really good recreation. I then went into the beach parking area and all the way to the North Pier Parking Lot. I was there for the lighthouse, so I walked the pier to the end and took photos of the light and the boats coming and going. It was a really bust Saturday evening. There is a breakwater at the end of the pier and a lot of boats were anchored there, just hanging out. Back at the pier parking area, you can see the Silversides across the channel and there were people renting fishing poles to parents with kids, which was a cool idea.

I had a great time.

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

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.

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.

Wonderful beach. Not too crowded. Nice, relaxing place to get away for an hour or two while staying in town to be with a family member who was here in the hospital.

This State Park is off the beaten path but it has absolutely beautiful views and is peaceful. It is definitely worth the drive. The beach is a must see especially if you are an avid rock hound like me....tons of rocks!! We also saved a snapping turtle, it was too wore out to bite!

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.

The park is absolutely beautiful and the beaches are fantastic. There are trails in the dunes and plenty of places to ride bikes. Great place for the family!
