There is a park play place for kids but everything else is shut down for the off season months. Parking was free but there is an entrance... More

Our friends in St. Joseph, MI live adjacent to the park right next to the beach. The park was a nice area for walking their Yellow Lab, but the wind, cold, and sand blown streets makes the beach less than hospitable during this time of year. Surfers clad in full wet suits were still attempting to catch the elusive waves.... More

An easy place to bring young children. The beach slopes off gently and it is not very crowded on week days. If the wind is from the west, the water is warmer than usual.

After shopping at the cute downtown in St. Joe & too early for dinner, took a ride down to silver beach. It was chilly, with people wind surging on the water. It was beautiful with the sun reflecting on the water. Beware during the season there is a charge for parking.

This is a great location to take walks and visit with people. It is also a great place to watch the magnificent sunsets over the lake looking towards Chicago.

Long stretch of fine sand, as well as nearby facilities, make this an ideal Great Lakes family beach!

This probaly one of the best on lake Michigan, With all the things to see and do in St. Joe, then on a hot summers day, to be able to take a dip to cool off.............NICE ! Since it is a county park, there is a charge to park, but you can spend the day.
