This is the best beach around. This beach is on Lake Charlevoix which is one of the best beaches in the United States. They have a volley ball court and swings for the kids. The water is also nice and clean.

Came here with family to visit Lake Charlevoix. Had a good experience. Decent size beach, but no shade -- bring an umbrella if you tend to get hot in the sun.

We never saw any track or cross country teams training at that time of the year. We were there in early August. The park is beautiful with a great bike/running trail thru it!

Vehicle will be $9 for the day or $31 for the year. I do not believe they charge for campers to enter. But they will charge a daily fee to stay overnight if you so wish.
