About the Park

At approximately 1233 acres, Muskegon State Park on the Lake Michigan shoreline is the largest park in the township. It offers a swimming beach with changing facilities, a picnic area, hiking and boat launching facilities. There are 2 campgrounds located within the park boundaries. There are 105 modern campsites available at the Lake Michigan Campground and 139 modern campsites available at the Channel Campground both with modern restrooms and electricity at most sites. There is primitive group camping available as well as a Yurt which is available for rent.

In season, the winter sports complex is a hot spot of activity in the snow & cold. It features lighted cross-country ski trails, two outdoor ice rinks, a sledding hill, a luge run and just a few seasons ago an ice skating trail was added along with a snowshoe trail. For the first time, winter camping was also available at the Lake Michigan Campground during the winter of 2013/2014 due to its location directly across the street from the winter sports complex.

Also of interest is an observation point and a replica of a frontier blockhouse. This park is maintained and operated by State funds. A Recreation Passport is required for entry.
