A well kept secret, this gorgeous beach is rarely ever crowded and boasts the unique 'squeaky' white sand. We like the quiet, clean atmosphere not offered at other more popular beaches in the area.

There was plenty of parking, the sand was clean, the water was clean and there were ropes to designate a swim area. You can bring a lunch, umbrella for sun and bucket and shovel. Enjoy your day, we sure did.

We spent a few nights in the Muskegon State Park mini-cabin. We have stayed in the min-cabins (at other state parks) before, so I pretty much knew what to expect. I love the cabins b/c they contain a small fridge, microwave, and electric outlets. It is nice to not worry about packing a cooler and to be able to bring my coffee pot. The cabin was set back off the main campground road, which was nice. The site came with a picnic table, fire pit and 2 chairs.

The bathrooms were kept pretty clean while we were at the park. The locking shower rooms were great. We never had to wait in line and always had hot water. There were a few bugs, but that is to be expected.

It was a very short walk (2-3 minutes) to the Lake Michigan beach. We could hear the waves during the night. There is a nice deck, with multiple levels overlooking the beach. Many nice places on the deck to bring a chair/book.

There was the winter sports area across the street from the park. We went for some nice hikes on the trails. The trails are well marked. We saw some deer, birds, and butterflies while walking.

If you have young kids, they will defiantly want to walk to the ice cream shop. A nice treat, but the prices were very expensive!

The sites are not very private. Be prepared to see all of your camping neighbors. We had some great neighbors next to us, but just be aware that the spots are pretty much open.

My only complaint was when I made the reservation, the website stated the mini-cabin came with a charcoal grill. FYI - The other mini-cabins we have stayed in had a permanent charcoal grill on the site. When we arrived, we found there was no grill on the site. A majority of our food I brought was for the grill. A friend brought us a grill, so everything worked out, so a minor inconvenience.

We really enjoyed this state park. It was very relaxing and nice to be so close to the beach.

Stumbled across the park, walked a trail and enjoyed the beach. The weather was perfect, the beach immaculate. Just beautiful!
