Gr. Haven State Park has a great pier to walk on, the beach is kept very clean by the workers at the park, and the shoreline offers a great sunset.

Loved the beach! Clean, safe, enough room for people to enjoy their time there, good bathroom facilities. Saw rangers on official vehicles patrolling the area.

A beautiful beach and nice lighthouse add to the gorgeous sunsets in Western Michigan. Hope to return to see what it's like in the winter.

My sisters and I revisited Grand Haven in August. We walked into the park(no fee). The walk to the lighthouse is exciting with all of the adventurous people jumping into Lake Michigan directly off of the pier! We got some great photos too! The park has plenty to offer.

The beach was beautiful. There was ample parking available. There was a bathroom/changing room facility. It was very clean. Plenty of room to set up for the day. The only negative is the lack of food. There is no concession stand. When we were there, there were 2 food trucks. One sold frozen yogurt and the other sold deli style... More

Beautiful beach, clean, relaxing. All you'd want. Cane for a few hours in the day but was too hot. Came back for the evening--perfect! Lots of locals too!

Grand Haven State Park is a great way to spend a summer day. Plenty of space to lay down a towel, lots of nearby activities, nice sand, and great views of the lighthouse. Great place for people watching, laying around, swimming, building sand castles, and walking down the beach (and out to the lighthouse). It is a state park, so... More

A very beautiful beach. The restrooms are large and decent. There were no concessions available on the days we were there. The were some vending machines in the bath house. Two food trucks were parked nearby but only one (a yogurt truck) was open. If you want food, you would do best to bring your own.

Many accesses to the sandy beaches in the park. Wide variety of other activities available such as hiking, biking, trails, boardwalks.
