Ludington State Park is comprised of nearly 5,300 acres of scenic sand dunes, shoreline vista, ponds, marshlands and forests. It is situated between Hamlin Lake and Lake Michigan with several miles of shoreline and beaches on both bodies of water.
There are three modern campgrounds at Ludington State Park -- Pines, Cedar and Beechwood -- with a combined total of 355 campsites including three mini-cabins. These sites have electricity and modern shower and bathroom facilities in each campground. Cedar Campground also has a small loop of eight tent-only sites separated from the modern site loop. These tent sites do not have electricity but are within walking distance of the restrooms and showers.
For backpack campers, Ludington offers 10 remote tent sites in the Jack Pine Hike-In only campground. This campground has no electricity and the toilet facilities are rustic. Showers are available at the Pines modern campground when that campground is open. All equipment and supplies must be backpacked or bicycle packed one mile into the sites from the designated parking area.
Dogs are not allowed in any water area used for swimming or wading. They may not be left unattended, and must be on a leash no longer than six feet and under the owner's control at all times.
The outdoor amphitheater at the state park may be rented for open air weddings in a wooded setting. The rental fee includes reserved parking, exclusive use of the amphitheater facility with electricity available and restrooms nearby. Access to the beach and other scenic areas is available for photo opportunities. For details and reservations call the park office (231) 843-2423.
