There is a clean bathhouse with showers, changing areas and restroom facilities. A gift store, snack bar, ice cream shop and picnic areas are also located on this beach. The beach is clean,... More

I had never been to this beach but met my friend there who is a native Hollander. What a great kid friendly beach. The snack shack and dressing room is convenient and well staffed. The views from the beach are great. The red lighthouse was so picturesque. The pier was a great place for all the older kids to hang... More

We showed up quite early when there were plenty of parking spaces available so parking wasn't an issue at all for us. We still aren't sure if we should have been charged for going to this beach as it seemed there were posted prices but no one was manning the booths to take money. The dressing room area is a...

It was really hot the day we visited the beach. We were able to park near the sand, and it was not too far of a walk to the water. It was very crowded to other beaches I have been to such as in St. Joseph. The water was clean except for some plants on the shore. The St. Joseph... More

I live in Holland and we as a family opt to go to this beach most of the time. Ample parking and multiple areas to enjoy. Lots of beach area to fly kites of any size, throw the football-frizbe-beach games without worring about sunbathers nearby. It is also a flat walk to the water rather than larger dunes to go...

A charming place to walk along boardwalks, watch the boats go in & out of harbour, see the lighthouse & generally mess about on the beach.

Can reach the beach with no steps to walk. Nice place to walk out to the end of peir and then along the channel from Lake Macatawa to Lake Michigan. The lighthouse is across the channel so you can't walk up to it from the State Park but you can get nice photos of it. There is a snack bar... More

Beautiful beach. I liked the fact that there is a little shop where you can buy towels and things as well as snacks. I was a little surprised at the $11 fee to get in. They don't offer a day pass but it's still reasonable.

I am always amazed how many people from the East side of Michigan have not spent any time at Lake Michigan. Boy are they missing out! Camped at Holland state park on the beach - unbelievable. There is also day parking available. A large snack/gift shop has any beach supplies or food you may have forgotten. Soft sand, clear water,... More

We went here to have our engagement photos taken. They were beautiful and well worth the 2 hour drive!! The beach is clean, as is the water.
