Orchard Beach State Park
Orchard Beach State Park is situated on a 100-foot bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, 3 miles north of Manistee. The park is best known for its spectacular views of sunsets and Lake Michigan. Please note: Due to high water and erosion, access to the beach (only available via the stairs) is closed.
The park was named for the old apple orchard that stood more than 100 years ago. Today, the centerpiece of the park is the recently restored and relocated 850-ton historic structure. More than 3.5 miles of trail traverse through an old-growth forest and former farmland.
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.
