Nice and relaxing for walking and driving thru. They have a dark sky area for viewing - had never heard of that before but sounded so interesting. Would love to go back in summer and do a viewing from there

Nice (but Soggy).

This beach (and grass picnic area) sits between the Nicolet North and South campgrounds. It’s also the location of the cap store (ice, food, etc.), bike and boat rentals, and shower and flush toilet facilities—all in addition to a newer shelter and changing rooms. So there’s a lot going on here beyond the actual sand beach (which is on the small side). Still, it’s a lovely relaxing space.

On my most recent visit I drove into the parking area before sunrise to use the bathroom facilities because of construction in the South campground. It had been raining recently and, as I walked across the grass picnic area toward the shower building, I took a step into a few inches of standing water (yikes!) After using the facilities, I walked back to the parking lot on the asphalt trail where I found a sump pump erected to drain low-level areas that are prone to flooding.

So the beach area is quite nice (even if a bit soggy during the rainy season).

Wow! People love it here!

The parking lot was full! This great family beach is located in Peninsula State Park. People were throwing frisbee, grilling out, laying in the sun, and swimming. The place was crowded! There is a little market here with everything you can find in a convenience store, including clothing, and I bought a sweatshirt as well as some sparkling waters. Right next door in the same little building, is a grill selling hotdogs etc... what a great place to spend a day!

Best Beach For Kids
Aug 2019
This beach has a lot to offer. A great expanse and nice sand. Lots of room to have fun for kids. The water is too cold for me but kids don't seem to mind. Guess I was like that once upon a time.

“Nicollet Beach, Undoubtedly The BEST BEACH In This Area!!!”

We’ve enjoyed numerous beaches here in DOOR COUNTY & Our favorite of all times is right here in Peninsula State Park...

After camping with our children families & friends, seeing this site for over 50 years as well, everyone agrees THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE!!!

Even for a few minutes an hour or a day too! If you’re a beach lover as we are, this spot is for YOU...

Keep it Clean & Pristine Please! Lots of amazing ambiance & amenities exist here, a hidden treasure!!!

The water was amazing; warm, clear, & clean. The beach was a little small with the high water level but awesome sand for the children to play in. Also plenty of activities and rentals available for all age levels.

Nice Beach
Jun 2018 • Family
We love going to this beach when camping at Peninsula, it is pretty big and shallow enough for kids to walk out far safely. The water is usually too could unless it is July and August. It can get crowded on weekends in summer, but still comfortable. Really nice rest rooms and changing areas; also has a good snack bar and convenience store.

It has a big parking lot and a great place to start a bike ride.

We stopped in here on our tour. Since it was a week day well into September it wasn't very crowded. Enjoyed the view of Horseshoe Island.

This sandy beach is so quiet and beautiful this time of year. The snack shop is still open, although limited. We bike 5.1 mi. to the beach from the park gate every year and look forward to that cup of coffee and crackers to feed the gulls. Beautiful state park. Thank you.

Nice beach for families
Sep 2018 • Couples
This beach is in a cove or bay within Peninsula State Park. There are a number of different beach toys available to rent for your enjoyment (kayaks, beach trikes, etc). There are picnic areas and benches around the beach, some shaded. The beach is nice sand and the swimming area is well marked with buoys and ropes. The water at the back boundary is waist deep on an adult. There are bathrooms and I believe outdoor showers. There is a camp store onsight where you can buy treats, clothes, etc. This is a family friendly place to swim in a lake or play on a sand beach.
