My brother and I were staying in the area to go to Cedar Point. The park wasn't open yet so we decided to go check it out. Very clean beach with great views of Lake Erie. We were the only ones there as it was a bit chilly so it was nice and peaceful!!

The beach wasn't bad shape the day we visited. We didn't find a lot of garbage around. It was quiet. Of course there was nobody around to collect the posted fee for parking. There is a building on the right that is probably a gathering point at night given the number of tea light candles piled up in the corners.... More

I thought this lake was beautiful! We watched the sun rise over the lake and it was breath taking. The lighthouse also made a very nice back drop!!!! Love this beach!! Will definitely be going back! There is a 5.00 admission for certain times if the year- we didn't have to pay- we went after Labor day,

I hate to review any location in a poor light, but this beach is pretty disgusting. Obviously I've been blessed to have experienced much better beaches that I'd call mediocre. This beach we in passing stopped at to simply see an ohio beach, since we were on our way to cedar point.. The beach is in a smaller town, small... More

Enjoyed our time at the beach. Nice sandy beach. The water was clean and calm. Was fairly busy and somewhat difficult to find as there was very little signage. Was disappointed to find there were no restrooms! For $5 a car, and as busy as they were, you would think this is something they could provide.

Has a playground, grills, bathrooms, volleyball, and picnic tables. $5 fee to park, but when we got there at 8am, no one wa there to pay. Water was beautiful (cold) and the rocks were perfect for skipping. Took some great pics of Lake Erie and Huron pier.

I visited Nickel Plate Beach for the first time this last week and was surprised by how much it felt like I was standing on a beach in California again. Had i been blindfolded and taken there i would have sworn i was at the ocean. It was breathtaking! They have a nice playground area for young children to play... More

You have to pay to park. I think that's great if they put the money back into the beach.. But when we went there were lots of sticks and it wasn't very clean.
