Lovely mini beach vacation here. Beautiful lighthouse walk- just be careful of small children because there are no safety nets around. My suggestions: 1. Get there early. We got there around 9:30, but by 10:30 the beach was packed. 2. Park your towels as close to water as possible. If not someone WILL squeeze in front of you and put... More

Great beach! This is a perfect place to take the family or spend some time with someone special. The water is great, the sand is clean, and the amenities are too notch!

Absolute best camp ground we've been to. The location is fantastic - less than a mile walk from down town restaurants and shops. Camping on the beach was amazing and the beach itself was outstanding. Super soft sand, clear water, and we counted over 24 volley ball courts. The light house is a short walk away too. Lots of showers... More

We were a family of 5. We stayed in a 34' TT at the campground. The spaces are extremely tight, absolutely no privacy available unless you close the curtains and stay inside your camper. Campground is overcrowded and dirty. The sand in the campground and on the beach is full of junk, cigarette butts, plastic scraps, wood peaces, and even... More

The state park has a lot tone desired! While I get that it's beach camping it really isn't camping. It's a bunch of metal in parking spots closer to you than your husband laying in the bed next to you. The beach area is PACKED during the day.... Much fun if you are or have a teenager traveling with you....... More

Our family was looking for a cheap weekend trip to the beach, and MI is way closer to us than FL, which is where we usually go. However, it was absolutely not cheaper aside from gas, and while the lake was pretty it was also 60 degrees F (in mid July). We could not do much swimming, and next year... More

We love this park! Right on the beach, plenty of parking, a great spot for all the family including your teens. There is camping right on the beach, though it seemed busy and my guess that you have to book early. A nice playground for the little ones, plenty of volleyball nets and soccer goals. Public Toilets are available just... More

Managed to secure site 141 due to a last minute cancellation, which was literally on the beach. It was a prime location with an amazing view. Could not have been happier with our little slice of beachfront real estate. The short walk to the lighthouse and pier was fun, and the quaint town of Grand haven was easily accessible using...
