Beach is super crowded on the weekend and beach goers are a bit in considerate of the efforts to restore the nature dunes in the area.

Rented a two man kayak. The bay was a little choppy, but we had a great time. Staff was very helpful since it was our first attempt at this. Will definitely go back.

While I applaud the DNR for trying to recreate the natural dunes at Nicolet Bay Beach, it was made it less than ideal for vacationers wanting to spend time at the beach. The "new" dunes and grasses really decrease the size of this very popular beach (along with the rise of water levels in Lake Michigan). The beach was way... More

We spent a lovely afternoon at Nicloet Bay Beach. The Sunset bike trail ends at the beach, and there are multiple amenities, places to picnic, and rentals for water sports, including paddle boards, canoes, and kayaks. Very nice.

Well the weed patches are now in place and it looks just terrible. Used to be a really great view of the harbor, used to be a really great place to lay out in the sun. Not any more. Now we have a weed patch running down the middle of the beach area. UGLY

We hung out here twice during our stay. Aside from on July 4th itself, there was plenty of parking available and areas near the water to hangout. Liked having the snack shop and store nearby. Fun to watch the boats and just relax.

Great location and beautiful surroundings. Best of all for a public park, you have very good facilities including food to purchase.

Beach is nice and swimming area is a bit small. Snacks and restrooms are available, and kayaks/paddleboards/bikes are available for rental. Little kids enjoy playing in the calm water. Many picnic tables; nice shade!
