This area has dunes, trails, beaches and lots of trees. Its dog friendly and you can walk the beach for quite a while. We rode our bikes down and then walked around. Great way to spend an hour or a day!

North Point nature preserve is a picturesque small park to hike in, walk your dog, snowshoe in the winter and get outdoors! There are beautiful sand dunes, lots of frontage on Lake Michigan, please leave only footprints.

Our B&B was very close to this park so we went down to see it. Very easy access and beautiful views of Lake Michigan. There were wooded trails, disc golf, dunes, and a long beach. Great place to see and do it all.

We did not experience any mosquitos when we were there in July, due to the high winds that day.
