Silver Beach is nice. It costs $8 for non-residence to park. The walk from parking to beach isn't far. Love Lake Michigan and from our home this isn't a far drive. There are plenty of outdoor showers to rinse off and plenty of restrooms and changing rooms. There is also a nice concession area. All important in my opinion if... More

This is a truly great beach and a neat little town, very picturesque. The beach was clean, nice new facilities and sidewalks, great area for swimming. I didn't know that it is not dog friendly, and the locals were very unforgiving at my mistake. I had a worse incident at the beach just north of here (this beach was suggested... More

Nice, clean beach in a fun area of St Joseph. Steps from the Curious Kids' Museum, the Silver Beach Carousel, Compass Fountain to splash in and pizza at Silver Beach pizza. This place has it all! Beach is patrolled by rangers on foot, on 4x4 and the parking lot is watched by patrol cars, but did not feel oppressive. Bathroom... More

We come up here every summer with our family. We have beaches on Lake Michigan in Indiana but silver beach is so much better all the way around! The water is very clean and has a huge sand bar making it easy to swim and walk in. My only complaint is that they do not take credit cards at the... More

Silver Beach is one of our faves in the entire U.S. There's a huge splash park that's free and the parking lot near the splash park is only $5 for all day beach access. The concessions & bathrooms are large and there are over 20 volleyball nets, grill so, picnic tables, feet sprayers, kayak & paddle board rentals, brand new... More
