Traverse City is one of the destinations that I enjoy most in Michigan. With so much to offer Clinch park adds to the overall appeal

Beautiful park! Close to downtown, you can watch the lake, watch the people, have a snack and they even have restrooms.

Well maintained park right on the bay. Folks at the Kayak Rental Place are very friendly and helpful. Nice place to enjoy the water and be active.

Clinch park is a clean, quiet park. There is a marina so you can watch the boats. There is a stand where you can rent paddleboards and kayaks. The night we went there wasn't much going on.

Just follow the crowds and you'll find the place on the bay. The sand is nice if nothing special. The view is pleasant and the water pretty warm for Lake Michigan. Not a lot of seating (benches) nearby so bring a chair or blanket.
