The Lake Michigan Carferry, the S.S. Badger, runs from Ludington to Manitowac, Wisconsin twice daily. Even if you don't set sail, you can watch the magnificent ship return to the Ludington Harbor every evening.
Ludington State Park
Voted the #1 State Park in Michigan, the Ludington State Park is a must for those who love the great outdoors and the untampered beauty of God's creation. And we're just a 20-minute drive away! Rent a kayak, hike a trail, or take a swim in Hamlin Lake or Lake Michigan.
Miles of Beaches
Kibby is just a two-minute drive from Summit Township park beach on Lake Michigan (new playground and all!), but there are many, many beaches less than 15 minutes away, including Stearns Park, the main Ludington Beach featured in the picture above.
The North Breakwater Lighthouse (pictured) is a Ludington icon and walking the breakwall to the lighthouse at the end is a favorite for tourists and locals alike. But don't miss Big Point Sable at the State Park and the other area lighthouses!
Drive south and make a couple turns and you'll end up in downtown Pentwater. The tiny town boasts a quaint Main Street with unique shops and tasty restaurants with a view of the water. Then there's Pentwater Lake and Mears State Park...
We're just a 10-minute drive south of downtown Ludington. Do a little shopping, grab a cone from House of Flavors (their ice cream is made at the restaurant downtown), and take a walk to the beach! And don't forget to grab some dinner before you head back to camp... for some of our delicious soft serve, of course!
Travel the scenic Lakeshore Drive and then journey back in time at White Pine Village, a four dimensional museum featuring historical buildings and artifacts from West Michigan.
A perfect combination of relaxation and adventure, head south (about 30 minutes) to Rainbow Ranch and hit the trails!
While the Ludington area may boast beautiful beaches, people come from all over for the fishing. Salmon. Bass. Trout. Lake Michigan is the place to go--and it doesn't hurt that it's beautiful out there, too! For more information on charters, click on the picture above.
Since Kibby is south of Ludington, we're closer (about a 40-minute drive) to Michigan's biggest theme park and outdoor water park, Michgian's Adventure. If you're looking for a thrilling ride or a water slide, you'll want to hop in the car and make a day of it!
