Leelanau State Park

Just five miles north of town is Leelanau State Park, 1,300 acres of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline and woods. Located at the very tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, the park encompasses Cathead Bay with its pristine white beaches and glorious sand dunes (without the Sleeping Bear crowds).

New in 2017, the park has opened a new trail for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking. Check it our here.

In addition, the park offers the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, 55 rustic campsites, two mini cabins, 8.5 miles of hiking/skiing trails and a picnic area all managed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Enjoy hiking, swimming, sunsets, fishing, nature observation, in the park and many popular attractions within a short drive. Petoskey stones can be found along the shoreline.

Leelanau State Park is home to many endangered Piping Plovers, so pets are not allowed along the park shoreline year round.

Recreation Pass required.
