Lower water levels on Lake Michigan have resulted in bigger beaches for 2022.

We visited more than 50 public beaches from St. Joseph to Ludington to help you find the perfect spot of sand.

We’ve also included information about how difficult the hike is to the water, how much parking will cost you, what the restrooms are like and whether your dog is allowed to join in on the summer fun.
