Visit Long Skinny Park on Hamlin Lake

It might just be the smallest park you’ve ever seen, but Long Skinny Park provides some of the best sunset views over Hamlin Lake. A great local fishing spot, this park has just a couple picnic tables, grills, and benches. There is on road parking and alternate boat access available.


Drive west on Ludington Avenue until you reach Stearns Park Beach. Take a right on North Lakeshore Drive until you reach @ the Y Country Store. Take a right at the fork in the road and continue on Lakeshore Drive until you reach Long Skinny Park on the left side, just down the road from Hamlin Lake Boat Rentals.
