Best State Park in Michigan

This state park is huge.  There are a lot of hiking and biking trails. There is access to Hamlin Lake and Lake Michigan.  The sites are not huge, but not too bad.  You can also kayak and tube down the river. There is a light house that you can hike to and tour.

Best campground in michigan

This is one of the best state campgrounds in michigan. There is lots of wildlife and 352 campsites at this campground. There are lots of things to do in the area like hiking and water sports.

Winter cabin and snowshoeing/hiking

This gem of a state park is phenomenal. Camped here in cabins three times over two winters. Cabins with bunks (will sleep 5 total), mini fridge, electricity and heat. Outside pit toilet. Hiking trails are some of the best. Beautiful lighthouse, dunes, beach, inland lake (Hamlin Lake), river and Lake Michigan. Very quiet and snow-covered in winter. Gets very busy in summer. So many activities for all ages. Kayak rentals in summer. Great fishing. Guided snowshoe tours and lamp light snowshoe hikes in winter are awesome. Camp store. Several playgrounds. Beautiful new beach house.

Beautiful State Park

I have been to several state parks and most are very similar but Ludington State Park isn’t like any that I have been to. There is so much to do without even leaving the park. & there is a dog beach right next to the day beach area which is a huge plus!


This campground is beautiful, don’t get me wrong. But trying to get a site is next to impossible since they’ve outsourced reservations. Camped there every year since I was born for 18 years and have so many good memories. Back then you could pull up and reserve your site for the following year right then and there. It was sooo simple! Now the price has skyrocketed to camp and can’t even get a site. Sucks, but is what it is. Wish I could say we’d be back, but not sure. Would like to someday so my kids can experience the campground I grew up on!

Best Beach Ever

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.

One of the best campgrounds in Michigan

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!!

Always a favorite

This is one of my favorite State Parks’s in Michigan. Lots to see and do! Can’t wait to go back there!!

Yearly Family Camping

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!

Perfect dune camping

Make sure to book a site near the dunes. This place is perfect and books up quickly.
