Fisherman's Island State Park is a state park in Michigan.

Fisherman's island as seen from Picnic area. Now a peninsula.

It is a 2,678-acre (10.84 km2) park with five miles (8 km) of the Lake Michigan shoreline. The park did encompass a tiny island, Fisherman's Island, located a short distance offshore from the picnic area. However decreasing lake levels have slowly connected the island by a narrow strip of sand making it a peninsula. Located just south of Charlevoix, it features a rustic campground with some of the sites nestled in the dunes along the lake shore. The park road travels through the campground to the picnic area with access to the beach and 3 miles of hiking trails. The interior terrain consists of rolling dunes covered with maple, birch and aspen broken up by bogs of cedar and black spruce. The camping area is divided into a north and south loop and has 81 sites and 6 vault toilets. The park is open May 16 to November 16 and is maintained and operated by the Department of Natural Resources.
