About Tawas Point State Park
Tawas Point State Park is located on Lake Huron in Tawas Bay in Northern Michigan. The parks sits on a sand spit and narrow sandy beaches line both sides of the point. The water is shallow and warm for swimming. Located within the park is also the Tawas Point Lighthouse, which while it has been remodeled several times, it still represents a true Victorian-era style station built on the Great Lakes.

Recreational public beaches in Michigan are tested several times a week, typically from May to September. However, some beaches are tested bi-weekly or monthly.
Officially, the water should be clean for swimming from May 1 to October 31.
Michigan beaches are posted when the geometric mean of 3 samples collected at the same time exceeds 300 E. coli / 100 ml or when the geometric mean of 5 samples collected over 30 days exceeds 130 E. coli / 100 ml.
