Young State Park

Perched on Horse Point at the east end of Lake Charlevoix, Young State Park offers five miles of hiking trails and three modern campgrounds (240 sites total), all spread across 560 acres. The park was opened in 1921, and the log house concession stand (built in the '30s) rents kayaks and canoes, and sells coffee and snacks. The boat launch handles vessels up to 16 feet, and the beach is stellar. Young State Park
