My favorite beach in Michigan! Lots to do!

If I could only pick one beach in Michigan...this would be it. The beach itself is gorgeous and well maintained. There is a gift shop, snack shop and playground and plenty of... read more

If I could only pick one beach in Michigan...this would be it. The beach itself is gorgeous and well maintained. There is a gift shop, snack shop and playground and plenty of changing rooms. Within walking distance is the most charming carousel, the best pizza place EVER, a splash pad and an amazing children's museum! Perfect day!

Silver Beach is excellent for families with young children, as there is police patrolling to seek out rowdy groups. There is an $8 fee for parking for those who do not live in Berrien County, though. Sometimes, it is very busy, but since the beach is very big, claiming a spot is easy and painless. The sand is nice and... More

This beach is a family favorite of ours. We got there early so we could get a parking spot. Brought our beach canopy and made a day of it. Bath house is better than average. Concessions available.

This is what a Lake Michigan beach should be. Broad with perfect sand and a nice depth of the water near the shore. There are clearly a lot of things to do including beach volleyball and nearby water sport rentals.

There's plenty of room for everybody on the beach, which is good because it was pretty crowded. The water was cold at first, but you get used to it. Plus it felt good on a hot day. Pretty views. Only negative is the walk from the town, down the stairs/ramp and walk across to the beach part, then down to... More

Great time with family. What a beach should be. Nice place for kids with park and splash pad. Concessions were ok. Bathrooms could use a little work but with a heavy crowd it can be difficult.

We went to St. Joe for a much needed relaxing weekend and were truly surprise at how nice and soft the sand was at the beach. Now Lake Michigan isn't going to have the warmest water temps but it was refreshingly cool on a hot day. There are lots of playground equipment, beach volleyball courts, picnic tables and did I...

All the northern harbor town beauty with modern conveniences. The soft beach sand had a park located at the entrance and an epic splash pad within close proximity.
