Charles Mears State Park is a 50acre state park in Pentwater, Oceana County, Michigan. It is a sandy park directly on Lake Michigan, bordering a channel leading into Pentwater Lake. The park only covers 50acre but has swimming, camping, and picnicking areas and a one-mile (1.6 km) hiking trail. The park land was once owned by Charles Mears, who was an early settler of Pentwater, and was donated to the state by his daughter in 1923 when Michigan was beginning to establish its state park system.

  • Lovely spot to enjoy Lake Michigan beach for the day. Beach was well-kept. Bathrooms were clean. Food available. Easy walk to pier. Close to downtown Pentwater where food and other amenities are...
