Sure, you can take the family swimming here but there are other beaches without the trash you swim with here. I have to qualify that my wife and I are nature people, and being so are picky, but this place was in our eyes not a place to take a dip.

Great lakefront beach
Jul 2020
Great lakefront beach. Close to home for us. Nice bathrooms. Snack stand available. Nice boardwalk. Nice sandy beach, although the waterfront is rather rocky. Nice friendly staff at the snack stand. Picnic tables and plenty of parking.

Off the beaten path but worth it
Aug 2019
The beach is a bit small, and there's only one section where you can really spread out to soak up the sun. As others have mentioned, there's a lot of rocks, so it can be painful to walk down to the water. But there's a nice section of boardwalk to make the beach accessible to wheelchairs, and with volleyball courts, tire swings and another play area with a slide and bars to climb on, there's plenty to do. The concession stand is bigger than most and offers a wide variety of food at extremely reasonable prices. They'll also rent you volleyball equipment if you need it. When the kids are tired of the sun, there's video games, ping-pong and air hockey tables next to the food counter, plus there's picnic tables if you wish to dine on something from home. They really made the most out of the space they have.

This is a Typical Erie Beach
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is a typical Lake Erie beach. There is a lot of parking, but on the day we visited, the beach was pretty crowded. If you are looking to sea glass hunt, I would suggest other locations. I have never seen so many people searching for sea glass in one location in the entire decade that I have been a sea glass hunter. The beach offered "slim pickins" on this account as well. The largest piece I found (after spending 3 hours there both walking and digging) was about the size of a dime. I will not go out of my way to visit this location for sea glass again..However, if you are looking for an easy access, clean beach on Lake Erie, it would be worth a visit.

Great rocks and sea glass
Jul 2018 • Family
We wanted to stop one last time at Lake Erie on our road trip, but there was a big rain storm as we left Erie in the morning. The rain seemed to by dying down as we got close to Ashtabula, so we took a chance and turned off the highway and drove to Walnut Beach. We enjoyed a solid hour without rain and an almost empty beach while we collected rocks of all colors and lots of little pieces of sea glass. We could have stayed all day!

I am not sure it's somewhere I'd love to spend a day swimming, as there was some garbage and dead fish on the beach, and the playground and bathrooms looked a little rundown. But for our purposes, it was perfect!

Nice Beach Erie Beach - Could Be Cleaner
Jul 2018 • Family
Quiet beach, free parking, pavilions, playground, bathrooms. Not sure when concessions are open. We visited for the second time yesterday. Sometime in the afternoon, the concessions opened. They have bathrooms, a partial walkway which needs to be updated... other than that the beach itself was pretty quiet until it got busier later but I'm sure it was busier than normal due to the holiday. There was a lot of trash on the beach, and pets even though there are signs saying No Pets, apparently that is not monitored. :( The beach itself is pretty and we were able to find lots of little pieces of beach glass. I wish I would have remembered my water shoes though walking on those rocks... OUCH! Not bad for a quick trip to the beach to get in the water on a hot day, or walk and look for beach glass, also a nice place to collect rocks.

Great place to kayak from!

My husband and I kayaked here and loved the spot. Easy access to the water. Not as crowded with boats and people like Conneaut. Loved this peaceful spot.
