Wilderness State Park offers visitors many year-round recreational activities within its10,000-plus acres, including 26 miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline, numerous trails, a swimming beach, a dog beach, and a designated dark sky preserve for observation of the nighttime sky.

Camping options include 250 modern campsites that are divided into two units (Lakeshore and Pines), 18 full hook-up camping sites and nine tent-only camping sites. Six rustic cabins and three rustic bunkhouses are also available.

The terrain is a mixture of dense coniferous forest to mature hardwood forest, with some pockets of open, wet and meadows. There are an abundance of small ponds mixed in with coniferous wetlands. It's easy to get lost and everyone going into the forest is advised to carry a map and compass.
