Oval Beach-Saugatuck
Rated among the 25 best shorelines in the world by Conde Nast’s Traveler, Oval Beach has the right combination of sand dunes, seclusion and services that create its cachet, wide sandy beaches and a concession stand too.

Saugatuck Dunes State Park

A day-use park along a secluded strip of Lake Michigan shoreline, Saugatuck Dunes State Park offers 1,000 acres of land with 2.5 miles of shore line. The Lake Michigan beach is a 0.6 mile hike from the picnic parking area. In addition, the park has fresh water coastal dunes that are over 200 feet tall. The park's terrain varies from steep slopes to rolling hills. The park's major attractions are the long sandy beaches and the 300-acre natural area, which contains a coastal dune system, as well as three endangered plant species. Nature enthusiasts, birdwatchers and hikers are the predominant day users.



Stay hydrated, stay cool and have fun out there!
