Wabasis Lake Park
Wabasis Lake Park offers a wide variety of facilities in a very scenic setting on the shore of Wabasis Lake. Nestled among rolling hills and woods you’ll find a public beach, a four-lane boat ramp, various sports facilities, shelters and picnic areas available for rent, and trails with many lake views.
The park is home to a full campground with sites ranging from primitive sites to a rental cottage. Though close to Grand Rapids, Wabasis Lake Park has an “up north” feel that makes it an ideal getaway destination whether you’re visiting from nearby or are on an extended journey through the area.

Picnics & Group Events
Wabasis Lake Park has two picnic areas, an open picnic shelter, and an enclosed shelterhouse that are available for picnics and other group events such as weddings, meetings, reunions and parties. All of these may be reserved for a fee. If picnic areas or the open shelter are not reserved, they are available first-come first-served for no fee.
Baseball & Softball
As you enter the park, stay to the right to reach the park’s ball diamond.
The main basketball court is adjacent to the parking lot for the ball diamond and open shelter, in the southwest corner of the park. A second half court is also available adjacent to the beach parking lot.
The park also offers the only public boat launch on Wabasis Lake. The recently reconstructed launch has four lanes, a shoreline dock with tie-offs and ample parking. Upon entering the park, take the first left and continue on until you reach the launch area.

Single kayaks, row boats, canoes, tandem kayaks, and paddle boats are available for rental.
The park also is home to Wabasis Lake Campground, offering 75 sites ranging from primitive to full hook-up, as well as three rental cabins and a rental cottage.
The park includes 1.1 miles of shoreline on Wabasis Lake. The lake itself covers more than 400 acres and is nearly 60 feet deep at its deepest point. Fish found in Wabasis Lake include black crappies, bluegills, large and smallmouth bass, rock bass, pike and yellow perch. Much of the park’s shoreline is wooded or wetlands, but there are some areas that provide easy access for fishing, particularly north of the boat launch. The boat launch itself also provides easy access to offshore fishing.
Wabasis Lake Park offers a large, sandy swim beach at no charge to visitors. Dogs are NOT allowed at the beach.
Wabasis Lake Park offers four separate playground structures. One is within the campground and available to campers only. General park visitors will also find playgrounds at the beach, near the enclosed shelter, and near the open shelter, basketball court and ball diamond.
Between the beach parking lot and the beach itself you’ll find a sand volleyball court, which is open for use on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sledding is allowed on a hill near the entrance to the park.
In addition to connecting various areas of the park, natural-surfaced trails also provide access to scenic views and natural areas. The longest trail stretches about a half-mile, running between the beach parking lot and the spring house near the boat ramp.
