With more than two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and one mile on Muskegon Lake, Muskegon State Park provides the best of both Great Lakes and inland lake opportunities. The park's vast expanse of sand beach ranks among the most beautiful in the state. Twelve miles of marked trails, with five miles marked for cross-country skiing, can be found looping through diverse areas of flatland to bog, and lowland to scenic dunes. Waterfowl, waders, and shorebirds are naturally attracted to the area from spring through fall. Ring billed gulls are seen in great numbers. In winter, bald eagles reside along the lakeshores.
