If you're looking for campgrounds in Musekgon MI, South Channel Campground will not disappoint. Muskegon State Park is located four miles west of North Muskegon on the shore of Lake Michigan, and is one of the best Muskegon campgrounds in the area. There are over two miles of shoreline on Lake Michigan and over a mile on Muskegon Lake. The park is located near Duck Lake State Park and P.J. Hoffmaster State Park.
A variety of local attractions make this park even more remarkable, including Michigan Adventure (amusement park), Gillette Nature Center at Hoffmaster State Park, Muskegon County Museum, Muskegon Museum of Art and the U.S.S. Silversides (World War II submarine open for tours).
Great boat watching
Great for boat watching
Can watch boats go through channel from campsite, loved watching the lake express
This is a wonderful park for families! We have stayed several times and it gets better each visit!
Stayed here with our camper over the weekend, we loved it! We stayed on the channel side, and was right next to the pathway to walk to the channel. It’s very well maintained, fire pit rings, bath house, electric hookups, dump station, paved spots. It was close to The beach to Lake Michigan and the beautiful sand dunes right on the beach. We brought our dogs and stayed for two nights, it was a great place to start our camping season.
There are two campgrounds in the park - The Channel Campground & the Lake Michigan campground. We stayed at the Channel Campground two years ago. It's right on the channel from Muskegon Lake to Lake Michigan, so you have walking access to both lakes. The campsites were VERY close together. It was actually the first thing we noticed as soon as we pulled through the gate. Campsites have a paved parking pad, fire ring, electrical hookup, and picnic table. Restroom & shower facilities were relatively clean & well maintained. You'll probably have to wait for the showers, but that's pretty typical.
Overall, the campground was just average. If you don't like being close to your neighbors, I'd recommend staying at the Lake Michigan campground in the same park. Larger sites & tons of shade.
This is my go to campground in West Michigan. Just a walk from the beach. Miles of trails through the dunes and woods. A few lookout points scattered throughout. Sites have scattered trees and a decent amount of shade. Amenities are well maintained. A great offering in West Michigan.
