The Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is proud to announce that the Ludington State Park was named the number one State Park throughout the Midwest by Midwest Living in the 2010 May/June issue. Over the past year, travel writers from Midwest Living visited a total of 100 state parks throughout the Midwest to determine which Park was the number place they would tell friends and family to check out. Ludington was voted number one out of all that were visited including the Porcupine Mountains Park (MI), Wilderness Park (MI), Door County (WI), and many more.

Dan Flaherty, Ludington State Park Supervisor, said of the honor, “I feel it exemplifies the Michigan State Parks' mission and the hard work of our dedicated staff. They take great pride in providing quality facilities and services, and caring for the extraordinary natural resources that attract so many visitors to this outdoor recreational experience. We were very pleased to be recognized in such a way.” The Ludington State Park offers daily activities and events throughout the year including guided hikes, tours, snow-shoe making classes, and other programs. It is home to Big Sable lighthouse, a guided kayak course on Hamlin Lake, and over 350 campsites. For additional information on Ludington visit:
