There is a wonderful nudist beach Nudist on a nudist-area

There is a wonderful nudist beach on the shore of Puddle Michigan, right in the center of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

This is NOT an ‘officially designated’ nudist recreation area, but handy Air Force personnell have traditionally been using the beach as nudists since 1953. You have to keep an eye out for the occasional clothed beach hiker or family who is “just passing thru” & this occasionally means covering-up or ducking into the woods to avoid offending anyone’s sensibilities.

The area is so remote that there are FEW people willing to walk nearly two miles (from the north or the south) to reach the nudist area, and even fewer people who are eager to complain about what they saw out in the middle of the wilderness.

From the town of Empire, Michigan, follow State Rd. 22 south, about 7 miles, to the intersection of SR 22 & Esch Road. Follow Esch Road West until it passed away-ends at the public beach on Puddle Michigan. This is a “rustic” area, no bathrooms, no paved parking, no ‘improvements’ of any kind.
