Park Description from the State website

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 stes seperated 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 new 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 during the site specific season. 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 owners control at all times.

How to get to the Campground

Drive west on I-96 for about 170 miles to exit 1B and onto northbound US-31. Go north on US-31 for about 60 miles to US-10. Go west on US-10 for about 4 miles, right thru Ludington, to SR-116, North Lake Shore Drive, and turn north. Drive a couple miles to the park entrance. This has got to be a 4½ hour drive on a good day.
