Rock and Fossil Hunting in

Southwest Michigan

Southwest Michigan lakeshores are home to all sorts of rocks and fossils. You can find Petoskey Stones, Crinoids, Geodes and so much more.

For the best rock hunting experience: keep clear from crowds, avoid maintained beaches, be ready to walk, hunt after rain or a wind storm, and of course, bring a bucket!

The best beaches for rock hunting in Southwest Michigan are those less traveled. Grand Mere State Park is one of our favorites.

In addition to rocks and fossils, keep an eye out for beautiful beach glass.
