This campground easily has the best beach I have ever been to in Michigan.
It’s vast, has plenty of space and parking. The sand is always pure without straw or trash. There is a playground nearby and a very unique river running out to Lake Michigan. I witnessed a proposal the last time I was camping in the area. Family friendly, and serves great ice cream at its beach store.
Could use a few more volleyball courts but overall it’s fantastic.
Only major concern is the horse flies near the river running into Lake Michigan. The dunes nearby have hordes of flies that bite. Be warned! Haha.
Absolutely fantastic place to camp. They just about cover everything you could ever ask for in a state campground. You have to book your dates far in advance to get in here, but for obvious reasons. A+ camping experience!!
This is one of my favorite State Parks’s in Michigan. Lots to see and do! Can’t wait to go back there!!
Every we come up to Ludington State Park for our annual camping trip with my parents and Sister. It is a great place to be as a family. The sights are right on top of one another as is typical in Michigan State Parks but when you get a few sites it works out really well(it is my reasoning of 4 stars). Nice camp store, lots of hiking and swimming!
Make sure to book a site near the dunes. This place is perfect and books up quickly.
Right in between Lake Hamlin and Lake Michigan. The perfect spot to do literally anything. Ridiculous amount of trails, wildlife everywhere and so many spots to camp. Beaches and sand dunes and forest trails, lighthouses. Literally everything. We always make it a point to come visit at least once a season, if not more in the warmer months.
It is a great campground for a base camp! It is right next to Hamlin lake which has canoe & kayak trails. Very beautiful scenery. The hiking trails through the forest and dunes are excellent
Having never been to Michigan before, this campground shows how beautiful the state is. The campground was lovely and beautiful. Other campers were respectful and even after leaving my IPhone in the restroom someone actually turned it in. You can ride bikes, you can kayak, you can walk some trails, float down a river, or go to Lake Michigan. Restrooms were nice. There are also sand dunes and a lighthouse within walking distance of campground. If it wasn’t so cold there in the winter, it would be my ideal place to live.
Ludington State Park is a state gem. From spacious camping spaces and super clean amenities to water activities and trails galore this place jas it all. For every age there are daily park activities the entire family can enjoy. Learn about Lake Michigan or how to identify poison ivy out on the trails. Ludington State Park is also a great place to enjoy the famous Lake Michigan Sand Dunes. Skylime trail showcases the very best of the park shoreline all the way back to town. Oh did I mention the lighthouse. Hike or bike there you can climb to the top and see for miles. Staying at the campground? There are three very different ones to choose from. Each with shower/bathroom facilities cleaned twice daily with lost of hot water. Don't have a camper you can tent camp at any spot or hike in to go rustic. Don't have any gear? They offer small cabins in each camp area for those who can't rough it too much. Oops we need toothpaste…don't worry the park store is in walking distance from all campsites for all your camping needs. From Bugspray and hotdogs to firewood and raingear they have you covered. Oh last but not least amazing sunsets every clear night. From water the land Ludington has it all. It's right in out home state and we love it.
A very busy campground with lots of things to do. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was during quiet hours.
