Absolutely love the boardwalk in Spring Lake. It is just that, a board walk. No commercial shops, just boardwalk. Great for walking. Can ride bikes on boardwalk before 10:00 AM and after 5:00 PM. Lovely expanse of beach.

This is one of the best beaches I've ever been to. Extremely clean and quiet. Con't come to the boardwalk looking for rides and activities. Can't bring food onto beach, but you can purchase it nearby on the boardwalk.

While some people may consider the policies surrounding Spring Lake boardwalk and beach restrictive, it only makes the area one of the best to enjoy!

Love this boardwalk! Great place to take an early morning walk or evening stroll. There are two pavilions located at each end that have food concessions, beach shops and restrooms. Outdoor showers are located there to rinse off after a day on the beach. Outdoor...More

Doubt it. We never go on weekends or holidays. Too much traffic and way too many people. Winter is best for us. It is empty there.
