I was driving a friend's daughter back to college in January, and needed a break - so I decided to stop at Grand Mere State Park for a hike. I went to the parking lot between Middle Lake and South Lake. There were pit toilets,...More
So we were looking for some hiking trails in the area and Came Upon This State Park. When you pull in, there is a trail head that is supposed to be about a half a mile of asphalt. That asphalt was completely muddy. It's very...More
We had a trail map from the book 50 Hikes in Michigan and were able to follow the confusing trails to get to the lake, but could not find the return trail. Still, if you basically go west you can find the lake, and east...More
OK hike to beach thru dunes and woods, bring water, go on cool day. Dogs allowed on leash. Sign said you need some kind of permit to park? 1star for the beach itself which is one of the filthiest I've ever been to. Garbage everywhere,...More
No signs indicating what is ahead. Trail started out paved with swamps on both sides. Then packed dirt came next, then sludgy mud for at least a mile through woods. Finally you come upon sand when is climbing as you walk. Then a fifty foot...More
We have learned that this park would be less crowed than Warren Dunes State Park so we decided to check it out. First of all, GPS guided us to a private road on the south side of the park. Then we followed the sign and...More
We hike Grand Mere a couple of times each year. It is definitely a challenge. Without signage, you have to simply hike west and eventually you will find the lake. This past week was disappointing because the South lake is still flooded and so the...More

This would be a tough place to stop and do this. You have to have a daily or annual state park pass to park here and there's no place to pay for this at this park. You will have to drive to Warren Beach just down the way and pay there. I think it's around $9. You could just stay at Warren Dunes and stretch there. If you decide to drive back to Grand Mere keep in mind it's pretty hard hiking in the dunes. Really pretty once you get out of the wooded area, but you'll spend most of your hour break hiking. I'm pretty sure the parking fee could be paid with cash or credit.
