Our family enjoyed unseasonably warm temperatures during our midwinter break by hiking the trails. They are beautiful, well-maintained, and it was fun to stop in the hiking cabin along the way.

Lud State Park has been my favorite place to go since I was about 4 years old! Both lakes - Michigan & Hamlin, the trails, the river, the animals in their natural setting, the dunes...It's simply an amazing place and completely unique. Everyone should see it!

I would highly recommend a visit, there are gorgeous ridge trails and miles... More

You can go to the Ludington State Park time and time again. There is something for everyone any time of year. I like the beach and the light house. Tubing on the river is great. The trails are second to none. In the winter you can snow shoe.

Clean bathrooms, quiet neighbors, and drop dead gorgeous sunsets over Lake Michigan just up the dunes behind our campsite. The easy hike to Big Sable Lighthouse was a highlight along with the Lost Lake Trail. Sites are close together but... More

We love art, we love nature. This park offers both. We come here to do photo shoots, and sketch. We bring a lunch of course, meet others with our same affections.

The Park is beautiful - we loved the beaches outside the park and next visit intend to visit the light house in the park.
