Just Beautiful !! Nice wind coming off the lake, great parking, not at all crowded. Sand clean and a wonderful walk with your sandals off.

Plenty of good parking...and lots of great sandy beach. Picnic tables are available. There is a fee to enter the park, but it is well worth it.

We visited here on a warm September weekend. It was lovely! The sand was very fine & clean. Lots of beach to find a place to relax. The water is so clear & the sandbar goes out at least 50 yards so you can wade in the water. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I were visiting the area and decided to come see the lighthouse. We walked along a "path" which was nice. The lighthouse was a lot smaller than I was expecting. After walking around a bit, we sat on a bench overlooking the water. It was lovely.

Went here to see the lake. Didn't swim since it was a cold rainy day, but the view was nice with the lake, red lighthouse and other beautiful houses.

The sand here is soooo soft! Wear sandals (not flip flops that might break under the weight of the sand). Really. The sand feels great on your feet! We enjoyed photo taking with a lighthouse in the background and hiking out to a lighthouse here, too. This is not as scenic as Ludington, but it is well worth a visit... More

I went to Holland State Park Beach last weekend with family and loved it! The park is always clean. Lots of room on the beach to play and bathe in the sun. The beach house has a decent snack shop, which also sells items you may have forgotten to bring to the beach. The scenery is lovely. There is a... More
