Lake Michigan Beach and Beach House

Beach house on sand dunes near shore Most visitors come to Ludington State Park to enjoy the miles of golden sandy beaches. Play in the soft, warm sand. Rinse off in the cool clear fresh water of Lake Michigan. Find the prefect spot for your beach towel and soak up the sun.

When you need to use the restroom or feel like having an ice cream cone, visit the large historic Lake Michigan Beach House. This beach house was one of the first park structures built in the park and is slated for historical restoration in the near future.

If you find that it is to cold to swim in Lake Michigan, we have an alternative beach called Hamlin Lake Beach and Beach House. This large inland lake is generally warmer for swimming and still features a beautiful sandy beach with a modern beach house. From this beach house you can rent canoes, kayaks, and fishing boats to use on Hamlin Lake. It is the best of two worlds--or beaches!
