Van Buren State Park
Michigan has the world's greatest concentration of freshwater coastal dunes. At Van Buren State Park between Benton Harbor and South Haven, you can enjoy a whole mile of these sandy beaches. The park on Lake Michigan has 400 acres to enjoy with more than 200 campsites. We owe this park's existence to the Harry Labar Drake family who donated the original 167 acre plot to the state for this purpose back in the 1960's.
