Holland S.P. beach

Hard to beat for freshwater beaches. Live less than 10 miles away. Every time we go, we say, "We gotta come more often."

This park is one of the most visited parks in Michigan. But, we no problem finding parking and a spot on the beach. The water was very clean and the beach sand was amazing.

Holland State Park is the perfect place along the Lake Michigan lakeshore. With Big Red Lighthouse, the channel to Lake Macatawa, pristine beach, picnic areas, places to camp in your tent or park your RV, make sure you plan to "waste the day away" at this treasure of a place. Bring your lunch or dinner and family too - perfect... More

The water was awesome. The pier was great would do it again any day it warm out. Loved the park if the weather was a bit warmer the park would have been perfect

The day we were here it was 50 degrees and super windy. There were actually a few people swimming. The view is gorgeous and I'm sure it's a popular place in the summer.

Lots of parking, cute red lighthouse. Huge beach! We were there on a warm spring day (water still to cold for swimming) but sun bathers were already gathering. Large bobcat and mover were grooming the beach for the upcoming season.

We drove to the "Black Lake Boardwalk East" (put that in Google Maps) parking lot and then followed the directions on the sign in the lot to walk about 1/4 mile to the stairs at the Mount Pisgah dune. We walked up the 230 stairs to the top of the dune, stopping to sit on the benches provided every 50... More
