Lake Michigan Beach House

Lake Michigan Beach House

The large, historic Lake Michigan Beach House was one of the first structures built in the park and was completely restored in 2015. The beach house functions as a seasonal visitor center, with park resources exhibited, covering topics including Great Lakes ecology and dune ecology. The beach house also offers public restrooms and a concession stand in the summer months.

If you find that it is too cold to swim in Lake Michigan, try the beach at Hamlin Lake. This large inland lake is generally warmer for swimming and still features a beautiful sandy beach with a smaller modern beach house. From this beach house you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and fishing boats to use on Hamlin Lake. It is the best of two worlds – or beaches!
