  • Wonderful time spent at the park. We chose to do the hike down to the beach..I would rate the hiking easy to moderate depending upon where you go. Our trail to go down to the beach of Lake Michigan.....  more

  • Wonderful nature area, we visited when there was overcast, and there were less mosquitos. Very nice and clean path with different routes, in side the forest and outside by the dunes, beach was clean, no stones or rocks. Locals take care of the beach area and it shows, sand was very clean, we enjoyed the views from here and this is only a less than a mile walk to the beach from the parking. The parking is also a short walk to the Felt mansion and the Frisbee field. We will definitely be back to enjoy Michigan best secret dune area and beach
  • This place is awesome! We went in early November and it was super. There are many species of trees and plants here and a lovely forested area until you get to the beach. This area had beautiful moss and mushrooms, beech and maple trees too. Once on the beach the sand is soft and I would recommend walking along the beach to get some peace and quiet There's a secret yellow sandcastle bucket. You should find that and make a castle.
  • This place holds a special part in my heart! Got engaged there! In the summer my husband and I go once a week to swim or read somewhere :) it's a beautiful place and clean! Enjoy the beautiful photos i have taken 💚
  • Nice hike through some woods on well trodden trails to this interesting stretch of beach. Only complaint is that the trails are not sufficiently marked if you're not already familiar with the park and there was no map available at the parking at the Shore Acres trailhead. Johnny on the spot located at that parking lot, so be sure to use it before venturing on. Plenty of shaded areas on the hillsides overlooking the water in case you're not planning on getting in.
  • Absolutely beautiful. You start out on a trail of overwhelming green scenery through trees and nature. Then, the bold blues of the lovely water of Lake Michigan. What a great way to start a morning!
