From Ludington, go south on Old US 31 (Pere Marquette Highway) to Iris Road. Turn right (west) and go to Lakeshore Drive. Turn left (south) and go 4 miles. Just south of Meisenheimer Road, watch for the marked turn to the park on the right (west).

From the US 31 Freeway, take the Oceana Drive exit (Pentwater's north Business US 31), and then turn north on Lakeshore Drive. This road takes many jogs and turns, but in about 3 miles you will pass Deren Road. Watch for the marked turn to the park on the left (west).
