I love this beach. It has a boardwalk running down the beach that makes it so easy for the young and old to get to the water with ease. It's kept very clean and has a great staff. Great pavilion and picnic areas. We spend most Sunday afternoons swimming and then grill dinner at the beach.

As a resident of Holland, I love visiting at sunset, when the waves are high, to relax along the channel under a tree or visit someone who is camping. It also fun to walk out on the pier to see if anyone is catching anything & check out the boats coming & going.

One of the hidden treasures of west Michigan. Easy access to the beach, but it can get really busy on a holiday weekend. If you happen to be there on a holiday - plan to get there early or you will not be able to get a parking spot. We live within walking distance to this park and go there... More

Couldn't believe the number of surfers out in dry suits with temps in the teens. Very fun to watch. Look out for sand blown up on the parking area, can really stich your vehicle. quite fun to watch!

Holland was our destination for a Girlfriends Weekend. While here, we made sure that we included a stop at the Holland State Park to enjoy the beach. There are picnic tables, restrooms and changing rooms, and a large parking lot. The beach is wide and sandy – lots of room to relax, play, and swim. This was a perfect spot... More

While I would not go as far as the TA reviewers who say this is the best beach ever, it is nonetheless a very nice broad beach, clean and not crowded.

I love this beach. It's got a large beach area of beautiful sand right to the water. It has a nice concession building and a walkway down part of the beach so is easier walking for handicapped people or those who hate walking in the sand. A very beautiful place.

If you visit Holland Michigan our beach front state park with Big Red lighthouse is a must see! Walk out on the pier or lay out on the beach and play in the water. But watch the flags. Do not go in if the flag is red! Red means rip currents. Take it seriously!
