Beautiful and peaceful place to snowshoe! Many miles of trails that are for snowshoers only....those cross-country folks have their very own trails. The frozen lake was like something from a movie, think Zhivago or Fargo!!!! A great place!

Looks as though human guests are unwanted. A great number of the plantings are already brown and dead. The tall grass will be great in a few years assuring that no one can sit in the picnic area and even see the lake! As I am not a botanist I, of course, defer to those who studied the location and...

Disappointed to see fencing during the high tourist season - it is a very small beach anyway. Bathrooms were also closed!!!

Great concession stand, food, necessities, souvenirs, t shirts and sweatshirts. Beach is sometimes full of washed up seaweed....water can be cold, but large beach. Kayak rentals are great!

The beach is shallow for probably close to 1/4 of a mile. It's also clear and sandy, so it's perfect for little kids. The kids had an incredible time. But it got quite crowded, almost too crowded. But this is clearly a popular spot which is perfect on a nice hot day.

My wife and I, along with out three grandchildren (6, 8, and 11), visited the beach as part of our Door County vacation. The children loved it. The beach is very shallow so that the children could go out for a long way and still be little more than knee-deep in the water. And, even though the beach serves a... More

This is a nice beach, especially convenient for the campers. Yes, there is some beach restoration going on, but alas if you venture past the orange fencing, you will see a beautiful beach with clear water and white sand. Not normally something you get in the Midwest. If you are more of a hotel type person looking for something fancy...you... More

Some tree huggers at the DNR put a dumb cyclone fence up that blocks the view and is trying to protect a bunch of weeds.

We went to Nicolet Bay Beach to see the beach rather than to swim. When we were there, a pretty large area was fenced off due to protecting the dune grass. The beach was small, and not particularly sandy. The snack shop/beach shop was very nice and clean, as were the changing rooms. A nice grassy area is around the... More
