Getting Outdoors

Lake Michigan is, without a doubt, the biggest draw to Ludington State Park. Take a refreshing swim, or rent a canoe or kayak for the family right on-site. The beach house near the swimming area also houses informative displays on the park's activities and ecological history.

Hiking is another favorite pastime at Ludington State Park. You'll find a path here which suits your endurance level, from half-mile strolls to four-hour-long treks. Over 18 miles of hiking and biking trails meander through the park's diverse terrain, putting visitors up close to the park's dunes, marshes, the historic Big Sable Lighthouse, and a waterfall. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife along the way. You just might spot an otter splashing in the water or a turtle sunning on the shore!

Home to a variety of species, including bass, bluegill, and walleye, the 5,000-acre Hamlin Lake is an excellent spot to wet a line. The section of the Big Sable River which runs through the park also attracts anglers from far and wide. The Canoe Trail along Hamlin Lake offers a unique opportunity to explore the park from a different perspective. Guided canoe trips are part of the park's regular event schedule, so check out what's happening when planning your motorhome camping trip.

Winter wanderers can explore the park on skis or snowshoes. Sixteen miles of the park's trail system are open to cross-country skiers. If you don't have your own winter equipment, you can borrow a pair of snowshoes right on-site. Or, if you time your visit just right, you can even take a class to learn how to make your own snowshoes!

Camping at Ludington State Park

Restrooms and showers are conveniently located near the campsites.

Rigs up to 40 feet long are welcome to camp at Ludington State Park. However, Pines Campground can only accommodate RVs up to 30 feet long. The maximum RV length at Cedar Campground is 35 feet. All campgrounds are pet-friendly to well-behaved pups who stay leashed. Pets are prohibited in the main swimming areas, but are welcome to take a dip with you in Big Sable River and certain parts of Hamlin Lake.

Exploring the Area

No camping trip at Ludington State Park is complete without going for a dune ride. Dune rides have been held in Mears, Michigan for years. Starting in the forest and moving on through the sand dunes, Lake Michigan, and Silver Lake (near Hart), this fun, fast-paced activity is a unique way to learn about the local environment.

While you're camping in an RV near Ludington, take some time to explore White Pine Village. Actors dressed in period clothing add an authentic touch to this fully restored pioneer village. Along the way, you'll see an array of historic buildings, including a general store, chapel, town hall, doctor's office, and so much more. The village's museums display a variety of artifacts detailing the history of the area's lumber and agricultural industries.

Looking for more outdoor adventures? Steer your RV rental toward the charming city of Manistee, home to the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area. This 3,400-acre expanse is part of the Huron-Manistee National Forests and protects many endangered species of flora and fauna.

Once you've packed up the motorhome rental and wrapped up your adventures at Ludington State Park, you'll find several gas stations along Highway 10, just east of town. Whether you choose to continue east to go RV camping at Huron-Manistee National Forests, or venture south toward I-96, one thing's for sure: you'll find no shortage of fun things to do in this part of Michigan!
