The state park consists of separate Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan units on the northern side of the channel connecting Lake Macatawa with Lake Michigan. It is often the most visited state park in Michigan, receiving between 1.5 and 2 million visitors annually.
In addition to swimming, boating, fishing, and camping, the park features dune areas, picnic areas, playgrounds, and views of Holland Harbor and the Holland Harbor Light, "Big Red".
