Easy to find but still hiding from the world, PJ Hoffmaster will give you many moments to pause and enjoyment. Camping sites are fairly level, miles of walking paths between the dunes and along the shore, and the Lake MI beach...this is how you find relaxing fun. Actually any beach on Lake MI makes me happy, but this spot really... More

I live only a mile away from this state park,and it is annually one of the most visited state parks in the Michigan system. The beach, camping, and nature center are all first rate.

My favorite state park. A Michigan secret is the amazing shoreline. Beautiful. Remote. Pristine. Kids run up the dunes for phone. Stay for sunset.

Great Lakes dunes are unique and this is a great place to explore the dune forest, open dunes and access to a beautiful sand Lake Michigan beach. The visitor center has many exhibits on the dunes. Lot of hiking trails and there is a campground (which I have never used). Our favorite and less crowded local beach.

This state park is really pretty cool. The access to Lake Michigan is just amazing and the trails and nature center are pretty cool also. Probably the only reason I didn't give it 5 is because personally I like to camp at private campgrounds that have less rules and a little better amenities. Really should have a 5 rating because...
