This is quite a popular beach, even during mid-week! The beach is quite big and the lake bordering it is quite clear and shallow, which is good for young kids. There are so many activities here. There are bikes and kayaks for hire. Kids like to make sand dunes and sand castles. Swimming is also a favorite here. There is... More

One of the nice beaches in Door County. Nice place for a relaxing picnic or a stop to see the sunset. Snack bar was closed for the season. Too cool to swim. But still nice.

We've visited Nicolet Bay Beach within Peninsula Park several times, with and without kids. It was a great way to cool off (and clean up) when we were camping. It was a spot to show off to friends with whom we were biking. I yearn for the day when I can join the fleet of gorgeous white boats that anchor... More

Beautiful beach in Peninsula State Park. Lovely views of the bay. Water is clear and cool and shallow. Soft, clean sand. Very popular and busy place. There's a shop right on the beach where you can get just about anything! Boat rentals and bike rentals available. We come here every year and spend a day having fun in the sun.

Really wonderful beach, with great views and shallow, clear water great for young kids. It can get extremely busy on popular weekends in the summer. And you also have to pay or buy a yearly pass to get into the park. But we've found it to be our favorite beach in the area. Also, the little adjoining shop by the... More

This beach is part of the state park and is a favorite of the campers in the park. The beach has shallow water far out so it's safe. And if you forget anything there is always the camp store - which has everything campers need, but forgot to pack.

The only reason I didn't give excellent is the beach wasn't that big. It's a very popular beach. With that said there are changing rooms, bath rooms (real ones that flush & have sinks), & shower rooms. There is a store, concessions, & a playground as well. Plenty of shade in the grassy areas & picnic tables. Park entry for... More
