Whitefish Dunes State Park
This Lake Michigan shore park attracts more annual visitors than any other day-use park in Wisconsin, but Whitefish Dunes State Park's beech forests and wetlands, plus 1.5 miles of sandy beaches and 1.5 miles of rocky shoreline, still feel quiet.
Windswept dunes rise up from the lake, some barren, some covered with swaying dune grasses. The tallest, "Old Baldy," climbs some 90 feet above lake level. A nice network of hiking trails and boardwalks lets you explore the area without damaging the fragile dunes. And the soft sand beach is a perfect spot for swimming, wading and sunning.
