Duck Lake State Park is a 728-acre (2.95 km2), day-use state park located along Lake Michigan south of Whitehall, Michigan in Muskegon County. The land was purchased by the Nature Conservancy from two Boy Scout organizations and acquired by the state in 1974. It officially opened in 1988.[1]

The park, which runs along the north side of Duck Lake to Lake Michigan, features a large sand dune. A beach at the mouth of Duck Lake is a popular spot for swimming and fishing. The park's Scenic Drive is part of the Shoreline Trail route in Muskegon County.
