A very large, clean, and beautiful beach on Lake Michigan with a pier to walk and a playground. There is a place to change and even a little rinsing station to get the sand off your feet. All of this and it's free! Very well worth the trip.

The channel walk allows hikers a sidewalk area to walk the full length of the channel from Lake Michigan to Muskegon Lake. Large freighters, sailboats, and all sizes of personal craft are in the channel at any given moment. Be... More

This is a really nice place. They have a nice play escape for kids, a large beach and a path to a lighthouse out on the lake. The sand is nice but the water was FREEZING cold so only my brave water obsessed niece went in. I think she was the only one on the beach in the water. We... More

This is a wonderful beach on Lake Michigan in Muskegon. The sand is fantastic. Offers playgrounds and picnic areas. A new restaurant open right on the beach. Take a walk on the breakwater out to the lighthouse. Just enjoy!

This huge, public beach is NOT a crowded, resort owned, fee charging, tourist trap. I've lived in Muskegon all my life and have heard people from many towns on Lake Michigan brag about their beaches. Most of those beaches are in State Parks (fees) or crowded or tiny because of private ownership of the land on Lake Michigan. At Pete... More

Extraordinary area, clean soft beach attractive area for the beach lovers and family friendly. The Beach is huge, long and wide. Walkways along the sidewalk are well kept as well as ease of free parking right along the path. The area is great for walking the break wall to the lighthouse, beautiful sunsets on Lake Michigan are magnificent. Well worth... More
