Introduction of Leelanau State Park

Leelanau State Park, located at the tip of the little finger on the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula, offers visitors over 1,300 acres to explore. The name “Leelanau” is Native American for “A Land of Delight,” and it perfectly describes the area. The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, a rustic campground, two mini cabins, 8.5 miles of hiking/skiing trails, and a picnic area are all part of the park. Petoskey stones can be found on the beach.
