About Duck Lake State Park

Address: 4733 N Scenic Dr Whitehall, MI 49461

Duck Lake State Park is a perfect day trip for the whole family.

Little ones will love splashing in the warm, shallow channel and the big kids will love jumping the waves on the big lake.

The dune climbs aren't too tough, and the whole family will love the view from the top.

The Walking Path at Duck Lake State Park

A paved half-mile walking path travels from the channel near Lake Michigan through the woods, past a boat launch on Duck Lake and ends up at the picnic pavilion and beach on Duck Lake.

Something Unique About This Destination

Be sure to hit the dunes! The dune climbs here are small enough that most kids and adults can get up them, yet tall enough to reward with spectacular views.
