Ludington State Park is comprised of scenic sand dunes, a shoreline vista, ponds, marshlands and forests. It is situated between Hamlin Lake and Lake Michigan with several miles of shoreline and beaches on both bodies of water. There are three modern campgrounds; Pines, Cedar and Beechwood. Be sure to visit the Great Lakes Visitor Center, located within the park.

The service trail was a bit hot in the sun and we also had to dodge the bus that was trolleying people and forth. Half way to the lighthouse, we ditched the trail and took the beach the rest of the way. It was so worth it. The other half of the trail seemed a little unclear due to the ponds forming at the base of several dunes, but the lighthouse was really neat with a great view from the top and a gift shop. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Short hike, but the steps on the Skyline Trail take you up and above the dunes with a beautiful view toward Lake Michigan. Right off the main path, but really easy to overlook on their trail map. I promise that the views are worth it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just a portion of our hiking over in Ludington. One of my favorites with a nice mix of woods, beach, and views of the dunes and Lake Michigan. Moderately challenging and surprisingly not very busy for a weekend in July. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great views! You can even find mini beaches if you want somewhere to swim without the crowd.

Saw lots of wildlife on this trail.
