“Great place to spend the afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The beach area has really been cleaned up. If you are a family- the beach is big for kids and shallow so they can go in the water. Places to get something to eat or drink are right there. If you are an adult, you may enjoy the tiki hut for a cold beverage

“Better off in a sprinkler!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Over crowded, ill-behaved people. Felt like I was at the zoo with humans as wild animals. I didn't feel safe there much less taking a child there.

“Best summer spot in MIlwaukee!”

So much is going on here! You can people watch to your heart's content! We play volleyball at one of the many courts...close to tiki huts which is always a plus after hours of volleyball!

“Kayaking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

There was quite a bit of garbage on the shore. I would charge for this wonderful location! I would certainly pay to go to a clean beach!

“Who'd have thunk it? A beach in Milwaukee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great little beach. Personally I don't like to swim in Lake Michigan - but its very picturesque anyway!

Cabana/beach-chair rentals are great. The various bars/food-shacks are inexpensive and fun. The volleyball is extensive and awesome, and there's jet-ski rental too!

Seriously fun destination for kids and (especially) adults! Lots of special events throughout the summer.
