Muskegon State Park is home to a variety of ecosystems, and therefore a variety of wildlife. It's 1,300 acres boast two miles of shoreline along Lake Michigan, and over a mile of shoreline along Muskegon Lake. In addition, it contains a forested dune area, which not only allows for our visitors to participate in a multitude of outdoor activities, but is home to a long list of species.

The park is also experiencing issues with invasive species. Park personnel are currently in the process of removing invasive species such as Hemlock woolly adelgid, spotted knapweed, garlic mustard and others.
