Manistee - Nordhouse Dunes

Current Conditions In Manistee

Best Wind Direction for Kiteboarding: NNE, SW

Facilities: Parking lot, no bathrooms or outhouses

Look to the east from Lake Michigan on a hot summer day and you’ll feel like you’re in a desert with the large uninhabited sand dunes lining the landscape. Take plenty of water. It’s around a mile hike to the lake from the parking lot and there is a nominal parking fee. A great spot to camp and kite if you enjoy roughing it. Bring some TP because there is no public bathrooms or outhouses.
