About 45 minutes north of Milwaukee, Kohler-Andrae State Park is nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan and features many boardwalk trails with stunning vistas.

This park is known for its sand dunes, which rise above the blue waters of Lake Michigan. In addition to the well-known dunes, the park features many forested areas with towering pines that makes for absolutely beautiful and fantastical scenery. There are 7 trails ranging from 0.25 miles up to 2.5 miles.

You will need an admission ticket ($5) that last for the entire day. The park office takes cash and cards.

Getting to Kohler-Andrae State Park is very easy. Coming from Milwaukee, head north along I-43 towards Sheboygan. Take exit 120 and go east along Highway V for about 2 miles. Highway V will then turn left (north) and turn into Beach Park Lane, the park entrance road.

Great for kids!

Gorgeous area. The cordwalk is very unique and great to explore. Definitely recommend, and will go back again!


One of the few places in the state that you can hike through the sand dunes! Great local spot!

I was blown away by this park today. The "cordwalks" through the dunes were something like I've never seen before. All the milkweed made it easy to spot many Monarch butterflies as well. Great views of the lake and beautiful beaches! I will definitely be returning often!
