This was our 2nd visit to Silver Beach. It is SO beautiful! It was pretty crowded as the weather and water temps were all just perfect. But we've found if you go to the south end of the beach, or just south to Lyons Park, there are a lot less people... no crowds. The sand is super fine, and the... More

The sand was so soft, the only thing missing was a boardwalk/sidewalk to get to the actual beach area. It's a long walk in the sand from the parking lot. The water was so refreshing on a 90 degree day. I would recommend coming early because the beach does get very crowded as the day goes on, and we were... More

The Beach was an awesome beach! It was very clean and was very relaxing. Definitely a beach worth going to if you're looking to go to the beach.

Took the grandkids to this beach for the afternoon while in the area. There is free parking 1-2 blocks away, but it was full. We paid the $10. fee & got to park very close to the sand. The beach area was clean, had lifeguards, a designated swim area,& a nice concession stand with food/drinks, beach supplies, & toys. A... More

We brought our kids here and loved it. The beaches are clean. One thing I loved the most is there's a playground right on the beach. Hearing the sounds of the water and a playground for the kids...... heavenly!!!

Beautiful and impressive park and surroundings. The history of this park made you yearn for the days of old. Cudos to the people of St Joseph for restoring this gorgeous area.

The lot was full the first day we went and had to park like 10 blocks away. There was an art Fair going on. Next say we were able to get in to park and it was much easier.

Beautiful beach area. Water is shallow for a while so it's good for kids. They had lifeguards there. There is a concession area, bathrooms, changing areas, playground, volleyball. The Whirlpool Compass Fountain, carousel ride, Silver Beach Pizza, steps leading to downtown are all within walking distance. I think it was $6 for area residents to park there, and it was... More

A beautiful long stretch of beach along Lake Michigan. There are changing facilities/restrooms, playgrounds, volleyball nets, and concession stands. The swimming area is very nice, as it doesn't get too deep, and there are lifeguards on duty all day. A very short walk takes you to a carousel (only $2 to ride), a giant interactive fountain, Children's Discovery Zone, and... More
