Play it safe
Beach and water safety are an important part to your vacation. Be prepared and know what to expect. Lake Michigan is big and beautiful but many do not realize it is a fresh water ocean. Rip currents can and do occur. Make sure you, your friends and family know how to handle themselves if caught in a rip current. Some parks offer the flag system but the best protection is being aware of the water conditions and knowledgeable about what to do in case of an emergency.
HIGH: A high risk of swimming hazards means that dangerous waves and currents are expected along the shore. Swimming conditions may be life threatening to anyone entering the water.
