  • Wonderful and peaceful and clean park to drive; to walk; to sit and watch the water; the dunes; and explore  more »
  • We went to this side of Michigan Lake to look for Petoskey stones., Never thought they're hard to find but they are! However, we found a little alcove and enjoyed a little walk on the pebbled beach...  more »

  • Very beautiful and clean park. Nice beach and great place to find Petoskey stones. We spent a lot of time looking for stones and enjoy the sounds of the waves and bird's. They have nice rest rooms and concessions. My girl's liked playing and running down the sand dunes.
  • Nice and clean. Friendly DNR employees that kept on top of what’s going on around the area. There is a trolley that stops at the park and will take you downtown, don’t miss out on this experience. It was absolutely amazing. The campground has a nice path, standard sand walkway. Hopefully we will be back soon.
