Point Beach State Forest

Point Beach State Forest is 2,900 acres of upland and lowland mixed forest, sedge meadow, sand dunes and beach along Lake Michigan. There are ancient beach ridges and swales to explore on the forest’s six miles of trail. This working forest is teeming with birds that find shelter here from the brisk winds off the lake. Worm-eating Warblers, Yellow-breasted Chats, and Blackburnian Warblers hunt insects in the treetops, while great rafts of waterfowl drift along the lake. The Rawley Point lighthouse is the tallest (113-feet) octagonal skeletal light tower, and the only one of its kind on the Great Lakes.

Directions: Located 4 miles north of Two Rivers on Cty O (9400 Cty O).
