We stopped in at three or four State Parks along the Lake Michigan Shoreline. This was by far the nicest and least crowded. If we had it to do again and could only stop at one - this would be it!

I would choose the trails over the beach for this park. On crowded summer weekends, the beach looked very packed.. But the backdunes and trails were nice and quite ( I just gave out the best kept secret). Try hiking to the back dunes (...More

There was a path all the way down to a beautiful sandy beach, the beach was clean of any debris and had beautiful sand, there were some sand dunes as well. The swimming area was marked off with buoys. It was gorgeous and not overcrowded.

We took a wrong turn and found this park. What a pretty place! We walked out on the pier and really enjoyed the sights.

The showers are cleaned twice a day and there is always hot water. The showers are private and water pressure is good. There are always activities for the kids by the host family and a great playground. The campground sells ice and firewood. No fireworks...More

Yes, certain times. Love the trails! The dunes create some shelter from the winds of the lake and the views are breathtaking. I would call The park for specifics.

There is a restroom and changing area in the swim beach parking lot. From the parking lot there is a short trek down some stairs (or a ramp) to get to the beach.
