Algonac State Park Beach is a 1,500-acre piece of land situated on the St. Claire River frontage. The four miles of trails located in Algonac State Park Beach offer some marvelous views of the surrounding lake plain prairies and oak savannas. These ecosystems are internationally known as containing a diverse array of endangered and threatened species, so make sure to take a break and see what kind of wildlife you can spot.
Canines are welcome on these trails provided that they stay on any leash six foot or shorter in length. Park officials would like to remind guests that these are protected areas, so dogs should never be let off their leash to explore. They run the risk of disrupting or destroying valued habitats.
If you would like to stay the night, there are three different campgrounds offering spots every evening throughout the year. These total over 300 in all, and provide several different views of the park's varied natural features. These campgrounds all offer public showers and restrooms, as well and coin-operated laundry facilities.
Reservations for these sites can be made up to six months in advance via the Michigan DNR website. Canines are allowed on all campsites provided they stay on a leash during their stay, as well as steer clear of any indoor structures on the campgrounds. Algonac State Park Beach offers the Michigan State Park Explorer Program as a way to engage in dialogue with younger kids about things like preservation and nature identification.
These programs are free with a yearly park pass, which is available at any of the Michigan DNR offices as well as their website. During the winter and fall, hunting is available for both large and small game species. Licenses can be purchased at most local sporting goods shops, as well as any of the Michigan DNR offices. No shops exist on the property for this sport, so make sure to come prepared.
