This little gem is a beautiful beach! It's a little off the beaten path and hard to find, but once you do, it is beautiful. To access the beach, you will have to walk up and down a ton of stairs over the dune. When you get to the top, before you start your descent, you are rewarded with a... More

There is not much parking at this Township Park. And there is a hefty fine if you park where you are not supposed to. However, if you get a spot and take the hike up and over the dune on the wood stairs, you will be rewarded with a great view and a lovely day at the beach.

the most beautiful pristine and peadeful beach we have ever been to. one has to keep in mind that there are stairs or dunes to climb before one gets to the beach - but it is very much worth it!

Let's start out with some positive aspects: -Nice, clean sand (no trash, glass, cigarette butts or anything) -Seems family friendly -Pretty views -The stairs really aren't so bad...don't get me wrong, there are a lot of them, but I brought my tennis shoes ready for the hike of a lifetime and they're simply not that bad. Stairs are very shallow... More

Loved the out-of-the way beach on Lake Michigan, but you need to be in good shape to get there! Nearly 350 steps to go up and down!

The first picnic lunch of the year at a beach that was new to us. Very clean and family friendly. Put on your hiking shoes and climb to the top if you wish.. or just find a quiet place and enjoy the day.

Beautiful beach, stunning landscape, crystal clear water, no crowds. The reason there is no crowds - it is a major haul up and down a ton of stairs to get to the beach! I'm used to walking stairs to access beaches in Southwest MI, but this is way more than I've ever seen. Pack everything becuase you wont want to... More

Beach is small and secluded, very different than the bigger state park beaches. There are lots and lots of steps, so if you have little ones, you might skip this.
