A beautiful winter scene!

We stopped by the beach to view Lake Michigan on a cold but sunny January day. The wind off the lake was strong but the views were well worth the time and effort. The inlet was... read more

This is a terrific beach. It's a little smaller and less overwhelming than Warren Dunes, and less of a walk from the parking lot to the beach if you have older folks with you. Nice view of the river/channel.

We stopped by the beach to view Lake Michigan on a cold but sunny January day. The wind off the lake was strong but the views were well worth the time and effort. The inlet was iced over, as was the rocky shoreline. I would recommend that you check the beach out regardless of the season. I am certain that... More

We enjoyed the view of the beach from the deck walk. Love the cute little lighthouse and watching the flock of seagulls flying round.

We love this beach. It is clean, safe and there is always enough room to sprawl out and enjoy the soft sand and lake breeze. The bathroom facilities and ice cream shop are an added bonus. The shoreline is dotted with small stones and sea glass that we always collect while we visit. My children and I have such wonderful... More

We visited this beach in the fall. It was quiet, uncrowded , peaceful, clean. Bring some blankets and someone you love to watch the glorious sunset.

Didn't care for the cottage we stayed in. Poor weather half the time. Not a good value. Over priced restaurants. Didn't even like the wines we tasted at the wineries. Lot's to "wine" about.

Think the title about says it all. It was pretty until you actually walked on the beach. There's seagull poop everywhere. As I walked a short distance down the beach, there was a dead seagull at the water's edge and another dead one on the beach. On the other side of the lighthouse and rocks, there had to have been...

This beach was fabulous It was after Labor Day, so no fee and not at all crowded. Very clean and facilities were ok for a beach town. I would go back.

very small beach, very crowded. Good view of boats coming/going from the harbor. If you come midday it will take a long while to even access the place!
