Spent a few hours here on vacation on my bday. There were quite a few people but everyone was pretty nice. Made for a beautiful beach day.

Love to get there early and get one of the few grills on the canal leading the boats out to Lake Michigan,. Then we like to play frisbee in the wonderful, extensive shallow part of the lake and build sand castles. The staff at the little shop there is so helpful, even inflating and deflating the huge alligator I bought... More

What a beautiful location and right by the Holland Harbor Lighthouse.....this state park offers plenty of parking and big sandy beaches for the whole family to enjoy. We arrived to the spacious parking lot just about dusk and enjoyed seeing so many people swimming, fishing, strolling the area, watching the sunset. The lighthouse (Big Red) is quite beautiful and particularly... More

Friendly family atmosphere said the childless reviewer. Very clean and no riff raff. Definitely not a frat boy loud mess of a beach. Relaxing to watch the big sailboats leaving the adjacent channel for the bay. 2014 $9 per car to get in. Its at the end of the road so you cant miss it.

The beach had grass from a storm on it but still was beautiful to see Lake Michigan. There are many sand bars so you could walk out fairly far. Then we walked by the lighthouse and out to the pier

Although packed, Holland State Park has a wonderful beach. They have a well stocked beach store and some of the best views of Big Red in the area.

Beautiful park and beach. Campground is right on the beach. Well maintained and pet friendly campground. Michigan DNR staff does a very nice job. Nice area for bikes. Local area has lots of areas of interest and boat rentals are reasonable. Water was chilly. One thing to keep in mind is that on the weekends there can be a line... More

Spent a few hours at this beach this past Saturday. Michigan State Park beaches charge a fee of $6/day or you can buy a seasonal permit, I believe. The beach is a very good size, very deep with a nice service building on the property with showers/changing rooms, restrooms and concessions offering snacks, an unusually large # of soft serve...
