Tons of sand dunes, lots of beach area, nice bath house with an activity/learning room upstairs. Get adventurous and walk the shoreline to the lighthouse or use the inland trail to the lighthouse. If you're up for a challenge, definitely climb the dunes.

You can go to beaches, swim, boat hike and fish camp and explore. You can spend several days here and never be bored.

I agree this is one of the most beautiful State Parks in Michigan and that makes it extremely overused. The sites are mostly dirt, muddy when it rains and many are way too close together for today's bigger units. One at a time the three...More

The beach and well-maintained beach-house are perfect for swimming, sunbathing, walking the dune lakeshore and watching the sunsets. The campground is well-kept, and the walk or bike-ride to Big Sable lighthouse is worth the 1.8 mile trek. Love this destination as it has all you...More
