Keith J. Charters Traverse City State Park
Keith J. Charters Traverse City State Park is a popular urban park located on the east arm of the Grand Traverse Bay, just 2 miles from downtown Traverse City. The 75-acre park is home to a modern campground, a fully equipped lodge, mini cabins and a day-use area. The day-use area is located directly across U.S. 31 and features a quarter-mile of sandy beach, a small beach house and a picnic area.
In addition, the 10.5-mile-long TART Trail runs parallel to the park, offering a paved urban route between Acme Township and Traverse City. The Leelanau Trail provides an additional 17 miles of paved trail between Traverse City and Suttons Bay.
A short drive will take you to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
Before visiting a state park, boating site or trail, it’s always a good idea to check the latest closures due to weather-related events, planned improvement projects and repairs. Visit Michigan.gov/DNRClosures.
