We went with a few couples for a relaxing beach day! The water was clear and there were a lot of boats out. We rented kayaks on the beach which was $35 for 2 hours and had a blast! The light houses are a walk down a pier. We didn't get to go today but we will when we go... More

My wife and I celebrated our 19th anniversary by taking our 4 year old took our first trip to Michigan (We moved to Indiana in 2001.) I cannot rave enough about the wonderful town, the atmosphere, and how nice everyone was! Being more used to southern beaches along the gulf, I was quite impressed. My only negative takeaway is how... More

Our first time here, big park! Very beautiful, lots to look at and see. Of course the water was too cold to swim in, and it got pretty chilly by the water, but it didn't stop the kids from playing in the sand, we will be back when it's warmer! Beautiful area as well.

It was very cold but that didn't stop me from spending some time on the beach capturing amazing views of the sunset over the lake.

second to none, very nice place on the beach on Lake Michigan. Has a pier that leads out to the lake for fishing or just a nice romantic walk.

I can't think of a better place to take your family. There are so many things to do on the beach for all ages. There is an awesome play structure for the young. There many places to buy food. There are very well kept changing rooms and showers on the beach. The beach is kept very clean. There are all... More

Part of me is reluctant to share this, but the beaches on Lake Michigan's coast are too amazing not to brag a little! Silver Beach County Park is in the heart of St. Joseph Michigan. Once you step on the sand you feel like you are in Daytona (June - August). It's a huge beach with plenty of room for... More

My wife and I have a summer home in St. Joe, and are regular visitors to Silver Beach. It is clean and convenient from downtown, with parking (paid), a concession stand, restroom facilities, playground, numerous volleyball courts, jet ski rentals, and several pavilions. It includes Shadowland Pavilion, which is a great venue for outdoor concerts, weddings and special events. The... More

I grew up in the area and every time I am in the area I love to go down to the beach and walk on the piers. Beautiful artwork in the park, and in the summer you can't beat the sand. Bathroom facilities and food in the summer months. Fee in the summer months, or park on the bluff and... More
