We are on the lakeshore with beautiful, sprawling white sand beaches. We have an up and coming downtown scene with many new breweries and shops. Winters as of late have been fairly mild but usually we get many inches to several feet of snow which allows us to have many winter sports. At the Winter Sports Complex in North Muskegon, you can ice skate, sled, cross country ski, or even try your hand at luging.

In Muskegon, lake effect causes the weather to fluctuate greatly from day to day. The weather forecast is usually incorrect because conditions change quickly. when planning an outing to the park, it’s always best to be prepared for wind, rain, or even snow. Additionally, you should invest in home insurance so you can be ready for whatever the lake throws at you.
