Nude beaches in Michigan
If you are looking for secluded beaches on Lake Michigan, then the further North you go in Leelanau County, the fewer people you'll likely have to contend with.
Skinny-dippers, nude bathers and naturists have been spotted from time to time at other remote beaches in the region, including Wilderness near Mackinaw City.

A Peek Inside One of Michigan's Five Nudist Resorts
Oh the freedom, soaking up the rays surrounded by sand makes the sun seem much more intense. A strong lake breeze, partialy blocked by the dunes, kept me from feeling too hot. Then after careful checks up and down the beach, there was the lake for swimming and it felt great skinny dipping in Lake Michigan.
