Clean and packed make sure you get there early to get a great spot, and don't be afraid of crowds because if you go to sleep you'll wake up and there will be a lot of people around you! The water this year is warm and clean, didn't make it up to the bath house but sure seem like a... More

We camped in our RV for 5 nights. While there are some noticeable improvements since last year, many more are needed, especially the bathroom/bath houses. Beautiful beaches on both Lakes Michigan and Muskegon.

I enjoy this beach because it is less crowded than other beaches in the area... It does have bathroom, grills and picnic tables.. As of now, no food trucks.. Pack a picnic and enjoy this beach..

We camped here at the end of July and was a very nice campground. The reason we stayed here was to hopefully see some freighters coming into the channel. Got to see the ferry a hundred times lol, but did get lucky enough to see the Cuyahoga freighter come through. We stayed on site #3 and was only a 20... More

We bought an Airstream earlier this year and have spent much of the summer touring Michigan's State Parks, which are a real jewel in the Michigan crown. Muskegon State Park, from this RVers perspective, is among the best. First, know that the Park has two camping areas -- the Channel Campground and Lake Michigan. We stayed at the Channel Campground,... More

These dunes are protected so you are on boardwalks and stairs. One you achieve the summit, you can see the dunes and the beach. The boardwalks all connect at the top so you can move along the dune without disturbing it.

This campground and the beach are absolutely beautiful! The campground is clean and there is plenty of room on each site. The bathrooms are well maintained. The beach and water is gorgeous with stunning sunsets you can watch from the elevated boardwalk area. Please go and enjoy!

I used to visit Muskegon State Park when I was growing up in Muskegon, my parents had a pop up camper and we spent many week ends at the park. I am happy to say that there have been some changes made to the park over the years and they are all positive. The facilities are very nice and modern.... More

The public beach at Muskegon State Park is one of the best in Michigan. There are no shops, restaurants or the like. There is lots of parking, a huge sandy beach that is a few hundred yards deep, an endless shoreline, a bathhouse and clean, fresh water lake Michigan to play in. If you want to spend a day at...

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
