We went to this beach last autumn on one of those unseasonably warm days (I think it was 80 degrees an around October 7th). The first thing you should know about this beach is the insane amount of steps you have to go up and down to get to the lake. There is a massive sand dune between the parking lot and the beach, and it is so steep and high it might as well be a cliff. There is a very helpful wooden staircase constructed to help you navigate it, but it is steep, and if you have little children, forget about it. You're going to be carrying them the entire way. It took us about 30 minutes to drag all four of our little kids up over the stairs and down to the beach.
But once you get to the beach, what a gorgeous view! The area is secluded and the sand pristine. It is a splendid view of the lake and there are beautiful dunes all around. We stayed there for hours and could have probably stayed even longer if we did not have to leave. I thought it was worth the climb. By the way, the only bathroom is on the OPPOSITE side of the dunes from the beach, so if you have to go to the bathroom, you will have to trudge all the way back up the stairs and back down the other side. The bathroom is a crummy little port-a-potty.
One word of caution - on the way back, I thought to take a shortcut down the dune by going over the sand and grass instead of down the steps. What a terrible mistake! The dune grass here is exceptionally hard. I stepped on a piece of it and got a shaft of grass lodged in my foot. My foot was all bloody and then I could not get the grass out. A few days later it got infected, and I started to swoon and get feverish. I went to the emergency room and they said I was only a few hours away from having blood poisoning; interestingly enough, the doctor told me that about two people a year die from such minor injuries relating to beach grass.
They did x-rays and ultrasounds of my foot and could not locate the piece of grass, so they just gave me some antibiotics to counteract the infection and sent me home, on crutches for two days. My foot was still in pain for three more days until finally the piece of grass worked itself out.
So, while the view is totally worth it, I would caution you against walking on the dune grass. It's extremely dangerous.
