Love this state park beach. Lovely place the watch the sun set, watch kiteboarders on a windy day, or simply walk the beach or boardwalk. We love this place. Can't get enough of it.

Love the large beach and view of the lighthouse and sandy bluff. I love the west side of the state and Lake Michigan. Pretty drive from Holland with views of beautiful homes. A beautiful area.

We camped at the campground nearby and walked to the beach. The beach is nice and the surrounding area is very cute. The ice cream shop on the way is very big and has buzzers for your ice cream!

Macatawa lake is right in front of Holland state park and probably 30 mins tomorrow lake Michigan. They are both beautiful but macatawa lake is less busy if you find the right spot.
