“Lake Michigan at it finest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2008

Very nice beach on Lake Michigan. We were there 6-25-08 thru 6-29-08 and there were life guards on duty. The price to park is quite steep IMO, $5 for the first hour and $1 each additional hour, maximum $10.

You can get in for free after 8 PM to watch the sunset.

They have a snack bar, small store and bathrooms. Drawback is that you can't leave and come back and still keep your time ticking.

The beach is sandy and Lake Michigan is beautiful. Small pebbles at the shoreline, but very sandy just a few yards out.

“beautiful beach but a warning of no bathrooms would have been nice!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2007

Visited a hot w/e in october and specifically asked the Michigan tourist info place on the highway if the beach bathrooms were open and was told they were. When we got there we found free parking (they usually charge an hourly type rate which surprised me) and the bathrooms padlocked....there was a portapotti that my husband told me was frightening. Since the town was packed with tourists i was surprised by this
Other than the lack of facilities the view and water was spectacular!!
