Michigan has shoreline on four of the five great lakes – some of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world – and nobody’s going to argue that its dunes and beaches don’t rival those of Cape Cod or the Outer Banks. But what about beaches on lakes that are inland from Superior, Michigan, Huron, or Erie? Well, you’ll find some pretty amazing inland beaches in Michigan, as well. Lake Michigamme, a 4,200 acre lake on the Upper Peninsula, in particular, has much to offer beach-loving Michiganders.
If you don’t feel like roughing it in a campground, you’ll find plenty of rental cabins in the area, some of which are just steps from Lake Michigamme and all of which are relatively close to Van Riper State Park.
Have you hit the beach at Lake Michigamme? Tell us about your favorite inland beaches in Michigan in the comments.
