State park

Great park was foggy in day we visited and we couldn't see light house. We walked down to the water, was great to hear the waves coming in, will have to visit again another time.

A bit cool for April but we had a great time walking the beach and dunes. Sunset was beautiful! Not busy given this is not a peak time .

Loved the large beach and the paved walkway. This is the only spot to see the Big Red Lighthouse. If you have a 70-100mm lens that is all you need. Recommended.

Abundance of fine sand beach and great swimming for all ages and skill sets. Plenty of tables and area to lay out blankets for picnics. Watch boats of all types ply traverse the channel from the marinas to Lake Michigan. Camping facilities for all styles of camping including a pair of rustic cabins that can be rented. A wonderful summer... More

I love lighthouses, so was glad to be able to see this one. The pier is great for walking out into the lake on. There is still snow and ice floating around in some spots! I bet this place is hopping in the summer!

A good childhood friend lives in nearby Zeeland so we get to see all these great places rather frequently...can't beat a good sunset on Lake Michigan...the people congregate to view the sunsets nightly
