Point Beach State Forest Nature

Point Beach State Forest is home to three State Natural Areas.

Wilderness Ridge: This ridge-swale dominated natural area boasts more than 28 species of sedges and many more species of grasses.

Two Creeks Buried Forest: A unit of the Ice Age National Scientific Reserve, this natural area is north of Point Beach State Forest along Lake Michigan and contains layers of sediments dating back more than 11,000 years.

Point Beach Ridges: This natural area contains eleven alternating ridges and swales with a variety of trees and vegetation. This is the only known Wisconsin location of the endangered sand dune willow.

There are many, many species of birds and wildlife here along the shores of Lake Michigan. While spending time here, keep your eyes open for not only a variety of animals during the day but also many nocturnal animals as well. Bring binoculars and a camera and spend the day on the trails!
