Sundling Park

Sundling Park is a long narrow access to the Lake Michigan beach. About 400 feet on the level, and then a moderately steep descent to the beach through loose sand.

The park has been planted with shade trees and has large rocks scattered around on which you can sit.

Swimming- There is access to Lake Michigan via a moderately steep trail through the sand. No lifeguard

Picnicking- Although there are no actual picnic tables, some of the large rocks would work for a small picnic, and the shaded lawn would be a pleasant place to spread a blanket.

Handicap Accessibility- The surface is natural, but it would be possible for someone in a wheelchair to get from the parking to the grassy area.

Access- Parking for about 12 cars just off Red Apple Road.
Restrictions- Dogs must be leashed, no motor vehicles. No lifeguard.
Treadway- natural surface
Grades- level dirt path through grassy area, then descend through loose sand to beach
Marking- none needed
Ecosystem- flat bluff plateau, with steep access through loose sand to Lake Michigan beach
Other points of interest- city of Manistee is about 3 miles north. Magoon Creek is less than a mile south on Red Apple Road
