Good Harbor Beach Bonfire


Good Harbor Beach: the perfect place to reconnect with friends and nature. It's secluded, but accessible and one of the best beaches in northern Michigan. Set aside an evening to enjoy a sunset around a bonfire, and maybe catch a shooting star or two! 


COORDINATES: 44.9474, -85.8113

LEVEL: Beginner (anyone)  

TIME: Medium (A few hours)   

ACCESSIBILITY: Easy (pets allowed, parking on site, kid friendly).

Fires, swimming, SUP/Kayak, sunsets, star gazing

WHEN TO GO: Summer, evening

30 minute drive from Traverse City. From the Traverse City M22 store, take Grandview Parkway to E 72, head left for almost 7 miles and turn right on Cedar Rd. In 12 miles, continue on Good Harbor Trail for 7 more miles and you’ve arrived. 

WHAT TO BRING: Drinking water, food and picnic items (s'mores!), firewood, blankets, swim gear, camera.

OPTIONAL SIDE TREK: Good Harbor beach is only 15 minutes from Pyramid Point.

KICK IT UP A NOTCH: Bring a SUP and cruise off into the sunset.

TIPS: If you pick a spot a bit off the beaten path, you’ll have what seems like the whole beach to yourself. Also, remember to take care of your fire properly! Dig a pit into the sand to create your firepit, and put water on it after you’re done. A common mistake people make is to bury the fire in the sand, but this can mean you’re simply preserving hot coals for the morning for anyone to accidentally step on—possibly children.

You know what's up. There's no other beach to have a bonfire like Good Harbor. Maybe you can't hold on to that moment forever, but you can keep the memory close with this rad shirt.
