Duck Lake State Park is a public recreation area covering 728 acres (295 ha) along Lake Michigan five miles (8.0 km) southwest of Whitehall in Muskegon County, Michigan. The state park, which runs along the north side of Duck Lake to Lake Michigan, features a large sand dune.[2] The park's Scenic Drive is part of the Shoreline Trail route in Muskegon County.

History

The land was purchased by the Nature Conservancy from two Boy Scout organizations and acquired by the state in 1974. The park officially opened in 1988.[2]

Facilities and activities

A beach at the mouth of Duck Lake is a popular spot for swimming and fishing. A half-mile paved trail skirts Duck lake. The park also offers picnicking, boat launch, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and hunting.[2]
