Nice beach front and great view of an early 1900's light house. Would recommend if you're in the area.

It was cool and windy when I was there and it was still beautiful! House on the bluff camping right near the beach. Restrooms and ice cream!

Holland State Park Beach is a must stop towards sunset for the beautiful views and the colorful sailboats returning through the channel to the marina. Of course, if you want a tan, arrive much earlier. There is also a nice building to get yogurt and other snacks and drinks if you don't bring your own. The highlight is the picturesque... More

Enjoyed the lovely lighthouse and the soft sand. Watching the sunset in the water...PRICELESS! Take a walk out on the pier and see fisherman and adventurous kids jumping into the water.

Wonderful beach.....Too busy; go in the morning. Waited in line over an hour to be told "lot is full"; post the guards and police at beginning of line so we don't have to wait so long to be rejected.

The beach is deep (i.e. there is a lot of sand between the parking lot and the water) so it can accommodate all kinds of groups. Sunsets are beautiful - highly recommend getting there a little early and staying until the last sliver is gone. Value is excellent for visitors. The park fee lasts the entire day.

Beach was very nice with lots of picnic area, clean rest rooms and a snack shop area. $9 parking if you're out of state, $11 if you have Michigan plates . . . seems a bit backward.

We loved Lake Michigan! We jumped off of the pier which was super fun! We also loved to just lay out and catch the rays but there were also volleyball nets available and tons of room to play Frisbee or other sports you might like. Overall great experience and we will be back!

We live about three miles from the State Park - how lucky can you be? We visit frequently, not so much to swim or do water activities, but to enjoy the lovely environment, walk, and people watch. Easy parking, a very short LEVEL walk to the beach and clean facilities are also a big bonus. There are always lots of... More
