I visited this park when I had a business trip to Grand Rapids. It was worth the drive! The beach was clean and sand was soft. It was a colder day for august so we didn't get in the water but it looked really clean. You can camp here but it looks cramped, and you're on cement. They had lots... More

Went to the beach for a photo shoot. Noticed the park had plenty of parking, spacious open beach and a beautiful setting for those who like to see the sunset. On the way to the park the area has many small stores and attractions along the boardwalk to see. I was pretty impressed with the area. Not to sure of... More

This town is a hidden gem, there is always room on the beach no matter what time of day you go. Feels like you're watching the ocean!

Beautiful huge sandy beach, you would think you were on the ocean. This was our first trip to the west side of the state, and look forward to returning.

Recently we spent the afternoon at Grand Haven State Park, the beach is very wide and spacious, plenty of room for every group to have their own space. Lots of volleyball areas, nice playground for kids. However, you need to be sure to take the drinks and snacks that you will want to have. There is no longer a snack... More
