HUGE beach, great playground for kids, close to town, awesome sunsets.Didn't camp here but the campground also looked very nice. The bonus was that the place was pretty quiet, not too busy.

Great sandy beach. Perfect for shallow play and wading. Has male and female changing rooms. Food, snacks and supplies at park store on the beach.

The beach here is beautiful, and there is a boardwalk that allows "sand Level" wheelchair access to within a few feet of the water. The office staff was friendly and helpful, and offered to let us use their new "all terrain wheelchair" - How cool is that!

Small area, clean sand, small dunes, ample parking and walking distance from Pentwater. Nothing outstanding.

Have lived in MI entire life and this is my favorite state park. Helpful staff, gorgeous beach, nice facilities, lots to see and do here. Good beach for swimming, especially for families with small children.
