Beautiful beach! It is so large and wide there is no concern with being able to find a place to sit. It is easy to walk to from town and has beautiful views of the lighthouse.

We drove by and thought what a great beach. So glad the next time we chose to walk out and sink our toes in the sand.

Super clean and nice park. Off Lake Michigan and has great views of the sunset. If in the area, a must visit won’t be disappointed for sure.

This place is amazing. I’m not from Michigan originally but it’s places like this that make me never want to leave. The long sandy beaches look like California. The state parks in Michigan as a rule are amazing. This is great for day trips with...More
