Norwood Township Park

Norwood, Michigan

This quiet beach on Lake Michigan’s northeast coastline is the perfect place to stop for a delicious lunch on a sunny afternoon. Located just south of Fishermans Island State Park in Charlevoix County, this publicly accessible park spans 21 acres and offers portable toilets in addition to picnic tables. While no parking lot is found on-site, a wide shoulder on the side of LakeShore Road, just north of its intersection with Lake Street, offers motorists a place to park.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
