Cute little park. We took a stroll, drank coffee and watched others kayak. It looked like you could rent kayaks but we didn’t look into how to do this. Nice quiet spot.

Unfortunately, with so little rain this summer, it looks like the beach is closed - narrow stretch of flowing water, but all buoys pulled in. Lots of sand. Too bad. Looks pretty sad compared to how awesome it usually is.

This is a fun beach. There are kayaks and canoes to rent, and there is a nice size BBQ area. It's in a good location just a minute from town so if anything is needed it's only a minute away.

Good access to this beach. The waters are nice and shallow for children of all ages. There’s a lifeguard.

We camped nearby and went regularly to this beach. Nice swimming area, playground, and a good spot to launch kayaks. If you swim outside the swimming area, you may run into a beaver! Even a pavilion, washrooms, and a nature trail. Never busy. Set back...More

This beach is very senic, with a great playground. The water is very cold but still worth a visit. Definitely pass by if you are in the area.

This is a great hidden Gem. Great for families and a nice launch site for all kinds of calm water paddling. Lifeguards were on duty at the swimming area. Picnic shelter too. Look closely for the entrance off Rt. 86 in Wilmington. It's not very...More

Though the AuSable river is COLD in June, we enjoyed just relaxing under the trees, watching the kid splash around. The beach sand was clean & the bottom not gushy. There is a volleyball net available. We also followed a trail along the river and...More
