Summer fun

Winter fun

A time for beginnings. The first flowers bloom, the sweaters replace the winter coats. What happens in Ludington?

The SS Badger sets sail. May 11, 2018 is it's maiden voyage.

The golf courses start their season and usually have a lower rate in the spring time than the busy summer season. 

White Pine Village, The Maritime Museum and the Lighthouses open in May. 

Hike the Ridge Trail or Skyline Trail in Ludington State Park and get great views of the lakes while the trees are not yet leafed out. 

Fishing in spring: check out these  charters. Some of our guests recommend Free Style charters.  Look here for what's biting at the moment.
