Orchard Beach State Park is a 201-acre (81 ha) state park in Manistee Township, just north of Manistee, Michigan. Situated on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, the park offers a beach, campground and hiking trails.
The park was developed by the Manistee, Filer City and Eastlake Railway Company and opened in 1892. After the company stopped trolley service to the park, the site was purchased by the Manistee Board of Commerce and deeded to the state to become part of the Michigan state park system.
The National Register of Historic Places has called the park "one of the most intact examples of a Michigan state park developed in the 1930s and 1940s under National Park Service guidelines.... retain[ing] the majority of its CCC-era buildings and physical layout."
The building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on December 8, 2009. The listing was announced as the featured listing in the National Park Service's weekly list of December 18, 2009.
