We stayed at Muskegon State Park twice for one night each time on our way to and from Traverse City and the north Chicago suburbs. This State Park is situated between Lake Michigan and Lake Muskegon in forested dunes with campgrounds located on the shores of each lake. It is a beautiful setting with all the typical Lake Michigan activities. The campsites are clean, but many are in need of repair, likely due to all the budget woes of the state. The Park is a 20 to 30-minute drive from Route 31, the main north-south route through this part of Michigan. If you are in a hurry, this would be an inconvenience.

Our first stay was in the Channel Campground, second loop. The second loop sites are newer, larger with concrete pads and have views of Lake Muskegon. We were in site 146 with fabulous views of Lake Muskegon. From our campsite, we watched a beautiful line of sailboats out for an evening sail. The dunes were accessible behind our site.

When we returned on our way home for a second overnight visit, we stayed at the older Channel Campground first loop. It was Memorial Day weekend and the campground was packed. It felt like the campers were on top of each other. Still, everyone seemed to make it work .The sites in the first loop are older, smaller, and harder for leveling your rig. This obviously is a well-loved, well-used Park for Michigan residents. The setting for the campground is in forested dunes making the ground sandy. The good news is that after a rain, there is no mud! The restroom facilities were adequate.

I do recommend that if you stay at this campground that you try the Channel Campground second loop.
