This 4 or 5 mile expanse of white sand beach on Lake Michigan takes you away from your average life stressors. With a great nature center and miles of "cord-walk" pathways through the natural dunes, you are treated to spectacular vistas.

I have been to Kohler-Andrae (called "Terry Andre" by locals) more than a dozen times, to swim, bum on the beach, camp, or picnic. It is a wonderful place to spend a day, or even a weekend. Be warned though - lake levels have risen in the past 3-5 years and the beach as you may have remembered it is... More

One of the most gorgeous WI state parks with endless sand beaches and unique natural areas. Worthy of a day visit our a several night camping destination any time of year.

The highlight of this park, for me, was the board walk through the sand dunes. On the day I visited the wind was coming off the lake and the crash of the surf was loud. When I got away from the buildings, and the other people it almost felt like I was on Cape Cod. Some sections of the path... More

Love biking down to Kohler-Andrae! There are lots of great walking trails and you get to see tons of wildlife. Lots of beach space. Didn't stay at the campsite, but I did bike through, and it is very well groomed.

I used to ride my bike daily through Koehler State Park! Absolutely stunning place to be in with the wonderful sights of Lake Michigan! Definitely want to camp out there soon!

Kohler Andrae State Park made it easy to get to the shore of Lake Michigan, walk its dunes, and spend a little time learning about the local fauna and flora.

It's gorgeous. My husband and I went a few weeks ago. It was so nice and quiet. I think all the tourists went home already. There were a few campers, but that's it. The sand dunes were beautiful and the lake was just gorgeous. There was a good breeze that day, so the waves were rolling.

The wind, the surf and the sunrise will bring you back to this location each time you get near Lake Michigan.

Camping or day tripping, this park has an abundance of nature trails, miles of beach and a boardwalk featuring the river and marshland, to enjoy. A nature center that has hands on displays and Rangers presenting a wide range of programs. From the boardwalks thru the sand dunes, to the forest trails, to the kids pond full of fish...this park...
