Van Buren State Park is comprised of 400 acres of land located along the Lake Michigan shoreline in northern Van Buren County. The focal points of the park are its high dune formations and one mile of sandy beach.  Located 3 miles south of South Haven, the campground is only minutes away from local shops and restaurants.

The day use area has picnic tables and grills, a picnic shelter and two modern restroom buildings. The shore of Lake Michigan provides a great area for swimming and a beautiful beach for sun bathing.

Michigan Recreational Passport Access is required. 

The campground has 220 modern campsites, located approximately 400 yards from Lake Michigan. While none of the campsites offer a view of the lake, there is a short walking path linking the campground to the day use area and the sidewalk down to the beach. Each site has electricity, a picnic table and a fire ring. Located within the campground are two modern restroom/shower buildings and a children’s play area. Reservations may be made up to six months in advance.
