A beautiful park that we visit all year round. Drove out for the waves and we were not disappointed. Always fun to see giant waves due to the wind! Cover your eyes! The sand really flies when it is that windy.

The walk is beutiful on this beach. You get to see kite surfers..few birds, amature fishermen, families and yougsters enjoying their time at the beach. It is very windy so would be advisable to cover yourself well in winters. The sight of lighthouse is the highlight.

Nice beach. We were there in the fall so no swimming. Fun to watch wind surfers and just chill. Lake Michigan looked like the ocean.

This state park in Michigan is really a hidden gem. The trails were gorgeous when we were there with beautiful fall foliage. We also were given the rare treat of seeing two deer about 20 feet away from us. Such magnificent creatures! The view from Mount Pisgah was beautiful. The Big Red Lighthouse was visible from several spots along the... More

We visited Holland State Park in later October when it was windy and damp. This review will consider the possibility and also the campground. The beach is a nice wide sandy beach. In warm weather it would be wonderful place to catch some rays and swim in the water. The day we were there we saw about a half dozen... More

Great place for a walk even in the fall! Will definitely return. Also camped on the interior lake campground as beach was closed for camping. Beautiful campground and nice bath facilities. Looking forward to returning and trying out the many bike trails as well.

Holland State Park has the best beach in Michigan. Campgrounds are very nice and some with full hook-up. Very busy on weekends and might have to walk in because parking lots are full.

Beach sand between your toes. A walk along the boardwalk and pier. Camping in the overflow with a great walk to the beach. Get here early in the day.

Year 'round Holland State Park is a great place... to walk, to swim, to picnic. Today was cloudy and windy, but I walked out to the light house, talked with some people fishing and watched two wind surfers. If you are in Holland, this is not to be missed. And off season there is no admission charged.
