Nature & Pet Friendly Parks in Manistee County

Traveling with your four legged companions is becoming more and more of a norm in the travel world, so rest assured that we have places that welcome your pets.

A top beach in the Manistee Area would be the North Beach Access.  Perfect, out of the way, and typically pretty quiet, even during the weekends in July, North Beach Access is very pet friendly, with miles of walkable beachfront.

Magoon Creek is a favorite for pets in any season for local and visitors alike

Magoon Creek & Sundling Park:  This nature area is typically overlooked by  visitors, however, if you are looking to get away from crowds at the major Lake Michigan Beaches, this may be your perfect place.  There are restrooms, picnic areas and plenty of room to spread out on this beautiful Lake Michigan Beach.  There is also a small creek (Magoon Creek) that flows out of the woods into the Lake that the kids will enjoy. A perfect for winter and summer recreation!
