There is something here for all, including wooded hiking trails, a sandy beach, and a nature center. We selected the Red Trail because it takes hikers to "Old Baldy", the tallest dune in the park. A boardwalk and stairs lead to an observation platform on...More

The Whitefish Dunes State Park has many great and well marked walking trails. The park hugs the Lake Michigan cost with some stunning views of the lake as well as of the local flora and fauna.

So many dead shad on the shore, when I say so many, I'm talking THOUSANDS of dead minnow sized fish on the shore and in the shallows. Not sure the reasoning for this, but that's how it was. Other than that I was happy we...More
