Many trails and spectacular views of lake Michigan and the rolling dunes. Early morning or a sunset visit is best in the middle of summer as the parking fills up, but some how still not as crowded as many other beaches in west Michigan. Good family beach as well since there are some more guidelines around state parks than some... More

First time camping. Friends had it booked for a group of family and we took the spot of a family who cancelled. The kids loved it. I was impressed even though I dont like the idea of camping- bugs and dirt and such. But it was enjoyable although a lot of work with 4 kids. We had a tent. Hard... More

I've been camping at Hoffmaster for over 20 years. This is a great place to camp! The beautful Lake Michigan beach is within walking distance. Bathrooms are clean. There is also a day beach if you're not camping. ** Check out nearby Whippi Dip for a yummy lunch and ice cream!

We love Hoffmaster. We enjoy camping in the park. Its close to our home so we go often. Clean facilities, right on Lake Michigan. You can't beat the location. They rebuild a stairway in the park and its awesome. Takes you to the top of the dunes. Highly recommend this park.

Great state park! Will definetly return :) Pros: good bathrooms, nice beach, very close (15 min) to many shops and stores, close to grand haven, trails, playground. Cons: some sites do not have much privacy between them, walk to beach is 5 to 10 min at campground with part of the walk on a trail through the woods that goes... More

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful State Park with our 12, 9 & 5 year old daughters. We had enough room on our site for 2 Large Tents and a Screen House. Probably could have even fit a couple more smaller tents if needed. The sites are very generously sized. We were very close to the Bathroom/Shower House. One... More

We traveled from Northern Indiana to camp and swim. We spent 2 nights and 3 days with an electric site. The park is clean and nice. Our girls were able to swim at two different beaches. It was nice and warm. The water was great. We enjoyed our time there and recommend it.

Our visit to the park was enjoyable. My wife is 7 months pregnant and did not have any trouble with any of the walking. There are 133 or so stairs to the top of the dune. A bit of hard work but a good view. Not a great view mind you. We also walked down to the beach and walked... More

We love all of the hiking trails that lead to a spectacular beach. Beautiful everywhere you look. Lots of parking. I have been to almost all of the beaches in Michigan and this is one of the best.

Hoffmaster is perfectly located between Grand Haven and Muskegon and offers great beaches and hiking trails. There are two 1-mile trails and a 3-mile trail through the woods and dunes that are a lot of fun to explore on your way down to the beach. The trails themselves aren't marked very well, so it's worth taking a look at their... More
