“Clean beach and nice facility”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The Petoskey State Park was pretty clean and the building was nice. We enjoyed swimming and were glad that even though it was a Saturday it was not crazy busy. The picnic tables were a bit lopsided and junky but hey...oh well...its the beach!

“GREAT beach”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Easy to park, with a short walk from the parking lot to the shore.
Great view of the bay,---very scenic. Very clean. There is food available at the concession, at reasonable prices, too. Also has changing rooms. Would definitely go back.

“Great day at the lake”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Like being Oceanside in Michigan. Best thing... No jellyfish and no sharks. Shallow enough near shore for even little kids to have a great time. We came on a windy day and there were pretty big waves! We paid for a state park sticker for our car and visited a few times. Great value. Bathrooms and concessions clean and convenient. The kids spent hours on the dunes playing and looking for Petoskey stones. Sunset was beautiful.
