  • This beach was recommended to us by the hotel staff where we were staying. It was beautiful! You drive through forest like trees to get there, then walk down a small path and the opening to the beach ...  more »

  • On a cool Monday morning in the month of May I took a hike on the Homestead Trail which is located in Hoffmaster State Park. The trail starts and ends in the Gillette Visitors Center parking lot. The marked trail is approximately 2 1/2 miles. Trail maps are available at the visitors Center. It is a scenic Trail with a number of hills to traverse. The highlights of the trail are magnificent views of Lake Michigan, the forest pathway, and the scattered wildflowers - among them were Trilliums and Virginia Bluebells. The hour or so that it took to hike the route was definitely time well spent.
  • The best beach in West Michigan. Because you have to have a park pass, there is less "trouble" getting in. They offer several life jackets for children to borrow, and it is pretty well maintained and clean, including showers and bathrooms. I refuse to go to another beach, this one is gorgeous!
  • Gorgeous place. Has a large parking area with nearby bathrooms/changing facility and a set of grills and picnic​ tables. Then there's a hundred yard walk through the trees which opens up to the broad beach and dunes.
  • Beautiful park. Right on lake Michigan. You can hike the sand dunes or enjoy time on the beach. There is not a lifeguard.
  • This place is beautiful. Such a lush forest with the beach in walking distance and hilly Dunes to hike. We love it here!
