Very nice beach, waterfront walkways out to the light house. The campground were full when we visited in anticipation of the 4th of July weekend.

For the 2nd year in a row we participated in the National Soccer in the Sand event. Grand Haven State Park is beautiful. The only down side in this visit is that the concession stand was closed and they only had porta-potties. That needs to be rectified for next year!

Even though the weather was cool & windy and we just wanted to visit for a couple of hours, my family and I stayed the whole day.

We visited the state park and beach on a Sunday afternoon, the beach and views of the coast are beautiful! Great sandy beach for kids to play and the water was great for swimming, especially the waves! Parking was sufficient, getting in and out was somewhat congested but doable, and facilities on the beach were nice. Easy walk from parking... More

Went here a couple of days while visiting the area. Sand is clean and nice. Large pavilion area with showers and bathrooms. Camping available on the one end, but looks like mostly trailers though we did see a couple tents. It's sandy. Newer playground area and many, many volleyball nets. All on the Lake Michigan shore!
