Few places compare with the natural beauty of Northern Michigan and Beulah

Few places compare with the natural beauty of Northern Michigan and Beulah, as part of that area, is no exception. Pristine Crystal Lake, great fishing and breathtaking sunsets keep people returning year round! The Village of Beulah and the surrounding area offers a host of recreational and cultural opportunities with each changing season that residents and visitors can enjoy.

The Beach

Located on the northwest side of the village on the shores of Crystal Lake, The beach has several hundred feet of sandy shore, a beach house, tennis courts, a playground and parking. Swimming is great at the beach with its sandy bottom and safely marked swimming area.

The Cold Creek spills into Crystal Lake adjacent to the beach and provides another avenue for swimming enjoyment. Fourth of July celebrations include watching the fireworks display over Crystal Lake from the beach.

The Park

The park has a large pavilion, barbecues, picnic tables and is almost entirely shaded by majestic hardwoods.

Bring your family and friends for a picnic or schedule your next summer family reunion at the park. During the summer there are frequent “Music in the Park” evening concerts offered at no charge.

Cold Creek

The Cold Creek is a beautiful, natural resource that provides habitat for wildlife.

The creek meanders through the Village of Beulah on its way to Crystal Lake. The majority of the Crystal Lake watershed is east of Beulah, where branches of the creek converge and form the primary inlet to the lake.

The Boat Launch

The boat launch is ample and well-maintained, providing access to Crystal Lake, Benzie County’s largest and best-known lake.

The launch is ideal for the launching or removal of most any size or type of watercraft. Use of the launch is at no charge.

Betsie Valley Trail

The bicycle trail runs between Frankfort and Thompsonville, including the village of Beulah in its long stretch.

From Frankfort the trail follows the Betsie River to the shores of Crystal Lake and on to the village of Beulah. The Benzie Sun Rise Rotary funded the construction of a trail head building in the village of Beulah where trail riders can rest and seek shelter if needed.

Beulah has overnight lodging, shopping, restaurants and parking to accommodate the biking traveler.
