Great beach, great amenities, lots to see and do! Enjoy!

Silver Beach is probably the most commercialized beaches along the coast - I don't mean that in a bad way. If you need a restroom, or place to shower, or food, or water... read more

Silver Beach is probably the most commercialized beaches along the coast - I don't mean that in a bad way. If you need a restroom, or place to shower, or food, or water fountains, they have it! Great playground equipment for the kids! We always walk out to the end of the peer - lots of fun! We love Silver... More

Silver Beach is one of the cleanest beaches i have ever been too. It is one of the vest beaches too for its activities for children and adults. The play ground is large and new. It has a carousel inside a snack shop. It has a huge splash pad! This too is very clean. It is a pd parking with... More

Silver beach park was a very enjoyable visit for us during our trip to St Joseph Michigan. Here are some high points. There is plenty of public parking in the area. There is a parking fee if you choose to drive down to the beach but it only applies during summer months so if you show up in the fall... More

This is a such a beautiful beach. Be aware that the closest parking is $10 and requires cash or check, no cards! However, there is another lot a very short distant that takes cards and is only $5. Street parking, if you can find it, is free but scarce. There are bathrooms and a concession stand, along with beach volleyball... More

Came to visit Michigan and this beach was beautiful and fun. They have facilities and showers and even doggie drinking fountains. Sand was white and soft, perfect for beach volleyball. The cute town is within walking distance with several nice restaurants and shops to cool off from the heat. Would definitely recommend to visit here!

Met a group of wedding guests for a pre-ceremony picnic and social gathering in a rented pavilion. Entrance fee for vehicles. Free parking after the entrance fee. Or park in free on-street parking and walk 2-3 blocks to the park. Nice beach. Food and beverages for sale nearby.

This quaint little beach is a great way to see Lake Michigan. It was clean and not overly crowded. It is just a short walk away from town and has something for everyone. Simply beautiful.

When Hagar Shores in Coloma disappointed us this year, we chose to go to Silver Beach. It is a top quality Lake Michigan beach with plenty of space. Although the parking fee for outsiders has increased by a couple of bucks, visiting for the day is totally worth the expense. The clean restroom facilities close to the beach make it... More

My family and I spent the weekend at Silver Beach based on a coworker's recommendation. I am so happy we did! Our son is 2.5years old and there is so much to do for each member of the family! The sand is soft as powder! The beach itself is clean, several volleyball carts, and nice playground, lifeguards, and parking close... More

Great beach. There was a concession stand, bathroom, shower rinse, picnic tables. Crowed on the weekends and if you don't get there early, you'll have a hard time finding parking. Went again on a weekday and much better. Less crowded and able to get parking closer. $10 parking for non residents but nice if you have little kids and lots... More
