Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, Van Buren State Park has one mile of sandy beach and high dune formations. It’s the perfect place to lounge on the beach, walk through woodland trails and enjoy a picnic lunch. Located 3 miles south of South Haven, the campground is only minutes away from local shops and restaurants.

The Youth Group Area is for Youth groups - a group of youngsters (generally 16 years of age or less although high school sponsored groups may include youth up to 18) who are members of a youth focused organization, camping with adequate adult leadership. A youth/adult ratio of 4/1 may be used to determine eligibility as a youth group.

The area has two, adjoining rustic sites with a total combined capacity of 50 people. Each site has picnic tables and a fire ring. There is a common water fountain with spigot and two vault toilets.

Reservations may be made up to 6 months in advance of arrival by calling Van Buren State Park at 269-637-2788.
