Leelanau State Park
The Grand Traverse Lighthouse is located inside the Leelanau State Park. Located on the Lake Michigan shoreline, the park offers rustic camping and two mini cabins. With 8-1/2 miles of hiking and skiing trails, picnic areas, and a scenic overlook area, there’s plenty to do here and if you’re lucky, you may even find a Petoskey stone.
