Petoskey State Park, located on the north end of Little Traverse Bay, is situated on 303 scenic acres and offers a beautiful sandy beach on the bay. The park has two separate modern campgrounds. Tannery Creek offers 100 campsites, and Dunes offers 80 campsites.
The half mile Petoskey-Old Baldy Trail is best for a short hike. The longer Petoskey-Portage Trail is great for both hiking and cross country skiing.
