Watch a Sunset at Laketown Park

Michigan Laketown Park

Added by Rachel George

Laketown Park is a hidden gem with sand dunes and an uncrowded beach. Perfect for panoramic views and beach walks on Lake Michigan.

Laketown Park is located between Saugatuck and Holland Michigan. The parking lot is at the end of 142nd Ave, and is directly next to the stairs that take you up and over the dunes to the beach. There are no official restrooms here, but there is a small pit toilet.

It takes about 5-15 minutes to climb the stairs to the top of the dune (depending on your fitness level) where there is a stunning view of Lake Michigan. This is a great spot to snap pictures and take in a sunset.

You can also continue down the stairs, which leads to the beach at the bottom of the dune. Here you can swim (no lifeguard on duty), sit on the public beach, or walk the coastline.

Don't let the stairs scare you. It is only a short climb and the view is worth it.

No fees or parking permits required.

Little Slice Of Paradise

Living in Northwest Indiana there are many opportunities to enjoy the lake. I decided to drive into Michigan one day and eventually stumbled across this place. This little park is perfectly situated for some beautiful sunsets. While the park is small and is located next to private beaches the area is perfect for relaxation on the dunes or near the water. Highly recommend visiting this spot
