High water levels on Lake Michigan are making it a challenge to get to the beach at Whitefish Dunes State Park. Rising lake levels have already forced the closure of the main entrance near the park's Nature Center. Park Superintendent Erin Brown Stender says visitors have to walk a little further to get to the beach.
Brown Stender says conditions at the second entry point for Whitefish Dune State Park beach have also been impacted by the higher lake levels. It could also be closed if conditions deteriorate further.
