Point Beach State Forest Current conditions


All hiking and biking trails are open and in good condition.


The beach is open and in fair condition. Expect a smaller beach area this year due to higher water levels on Lake Michigan. Keep an eye out for pelicans that have also been frequenting our area. 

Watch a video of Point Beach State Forest’s beach area filmed in July.
