Beach and Shoreline

The first beach access point at Whitefish Dunes State Park is no longer ADA accessible due to shoreline erosion, however, the access point is now open with stone slabs leading to the shore. The second and third beach access points are open with stairs leading to the shore.

Water levels remain high on Lake Michigan. When walking along the shoreline, please remain on designated hiking trails and exercise caution.

For current beach conditions, visit the Wisconsin Beach Health website.


The shelter building at Whitefish Dunes is open, however, fires are not allowed in the building until further notice due to an issue with the fireplace chimney. Space heaters are not allowed in the building due to safety concerns.

The shelter can be reserved online from April 1 through October 31. For all other dates or questions about the shelter, please contact the Nature Center.
