Michigan’s parks provide scenic places to play and relax. The sandy beaches along Lake Michigan are among the finest beaches in the U.S. We are known for an abundance of city and county parks that offer beautiful beaches, sand dunes, spectacular views, nature trails and much more!
Silver Lake State Park
“Silver Lake State Park is an almost 3,000-acre park in Oceana County along the Lake Michigan shoreline. This area includes both dune country and acres of mature forest. The dune ridges and valleys are mostly windblown sand and lack trees, scrub brush and dune grass. The dune area is sometimes compared to a desert. Silver Lake State Park contains more than four miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and boasts a large sandy beach.”
