Does anyone know how long of a drive it is from the FairField Inn on West Shore Drive to either Holland State Park or Tunnel Park? Thanks

I have been researching the beaches in and around Holland. I see that Holland State Park charges a fee to enter and its $8 per person. Is that correct or it is $8 per car? Are there any other beaches that you can access for free? I do not mind driving to other beaches. I have a 4 yr old and staying at the beacdh all day is not an option so i am looking to get the most bng for my buck.

Beach near Piper? (1 Replies)
We're heading to the Piper restaurant and are wondering if there are any nice beach areas nearby without driving around lake Macatowa to Holland State Park. Thanks!

I'm not aware of any. In the old days when Point West was still out there you drive out and get to the beach. I think they close the road to the public shortly after the Piper now. Good question, I'd like to know also.
