This beautiful park with 2.5 miles of sandy beach along Lake Michigan is a scenic gem. Kohler Park Dunes State Natural Area has a nature center, and boardwalk to access sand dunes.

Dunes are mixed with wetlands and dry-mesic white pine forest. Come see an unspoiled Lake Michigan shoreline. Will definitely be back.

Unfortunately it was too cold, 0 degrees, to walk the beach but seeing the mist coming off the waves made up for it.

We go to Kohler-Andrae several times a year with the family and with Scouts. It doesn't matter what time of year, there are always things to enjoy. Plenty of walking trails on the dunes, cordwalk, or in the pine forest. Great swimming on the beach, updated playground and really cool nature center. Staff is great, especially the Park Ranger. She has helped us coordinate service projects for our Boy Scouts and it is fun to go back each trip and see how they have improved the park. For a cool Halloween weekend head to the park on the Sat. night of Trick or Treat. The campers really go all out on decorating their sites with decorations, light shows, mini haunted houses, etc.
Don't take this park for granted. That lake is so powerful and cool. This is a great place to experience it first hand!

I visit the park 12 months a year unless I'm traveling elsewhere. It is a diverse location that includes woodlands, dunes, beaches on the shore of Lake Michigan, and marshland-all with ease of exploration. There is even a shelter for gatherings and a playground that includes the usual equipment and also both a baseball diamond and a volleyball court. There are bike trails and camping opportunities as well. Winter activities also include cross-country and snowshoe trails. With the exception of the dunes and the winter sports, all parts are accessible. It is an excellent place to visit if you enjoy nature and nature photography.
