If you're coming to West Michigan, you won't be sitting inside! There is so much to do in the great outdoors, from our miles of wonderful beaches and sand dunes to our variety of pretty, grassy parks and water access. The Ludington State Park has been named the #1 state park in the Midwest, and thousands flock there every year for hiking, camping, biking, swimming, and fishing. There are numerous other campgrounds in the area that offer rustic tent lodging, or a place to park your R.V. Our four lighthouses make this area of West Michigan extra-special. Add the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness area and the Manistee National Forest, and you've got every reason in the world to enjoy what Mother Nature has provided us.

West Michigan is home to some amazing golf courses that are both challenging and relaxing. All our local courses offer 9-18 holes, and offer clubhouses, pro shops and driving ranges for your relaxation and shopping needs.

Ludington is known for many things, but the S.S. Badger carferry is our most famous landmark. Recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Badger is the only coal-fired steamship in operation in North America, and the largest carferry to sail the Great Lakes. During the busy summer months, the S.S. Badger carries passengers and vehicles twice a day to Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The four-hour cruise offers on-board entertainment, food, drinks, games, and free Wi-Fi.

If you love fishing, West Michigan is for you! You have your choice of angling in Lake Michigan, home to world-class salmon fishing...or the calmer waters of Hamlin Lake where you'll find walleye, pike, bass, perch, and bluegill. The Pere Marquette River is popular for catching steelhead and brown trout. Fishing tournaments throughout the year bring thousands to town to try their luck at the big prize.
