Located about 4 miles northeast of Munising, at the end of Sand Point Road.

The Sand Point beach is a popular spot for sunbathing, or walking in the evening to the sun set over Munising Bay. Swimmers often find the shallow bay water off Sand Point warmer than other lakeshore beaches. Leashed pets permitted on beach and in the water.

The Sand Point Marsh Trail, a half-mile wheelchair accessible interpretive trail that traverses a beautiful wetland area, is a great place for birding. Watch for frogs, turtles, and even beavers along the trail. No pets allowed.

Park headquarters is also located at the end of Sand Point. Artifacts from the era of the Munising U.S. Coast Guard Station are on display in the nearby boathouse during the summer.
