Point Beach State Forest Current conditions

Trails

All hiking and biking trails are open. High lake levels are affecting some of the hiking trails. Contact the forest office at 920-794-7480 for up to date conditions. Be sure to stop at the office upon arrival for recommendations of the driest hiking trails.

Beach

Expect a smaller beach area this year due to the higher water levels in Lake Michigan. The water level of Lake Michigan in May was 32 inches above the average level and one inch above the previous record set in 1986. The water rose nine inches during the month of May!

Keep an eye out for pelicans that have been frequenting our area of Lake Michigan.

Point Beach campsites are in high demand and generally fill up on weekends from Memorial Day through the end of October.

The remote kayak campsite and Ice Age Trail campsite are located 0.5 miles south of the park office. The kayak site is part of the Lake Michigan Water Trail. Both sites are remote, non-electric tent sites with a limit of a one night stay. Sites have a primitive toilet, picnic table, fire ring and bench. Normal camping fees and rules apply.
