Nestled at the southern end of Grand Island is a lovely day use state park. Beaver Island is a 950 acre park with a 1/2 mile sandy beach. There is also an 80 slip marina (seasonal and transient), fishing access, all kinds of boat launches, bike and nature trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and shelters, a boardwalk, athletic fields, horseshoe pits, an 18 hole championship disc gold course, and 18 hole championship golf course (with a snack bar), and all kinds of winter activities are allowed there, also (some need permits). The Grand Island Historical Society meet in River Lea,the home of Grover Cleveland's nephew (Cleveland actually visited there). Unfortunately, I have yet to attend one of their open houses (Sept 21, 2-4 is the next one, I think). The new Beaver Island Clubhouse has banquet facilities and catering available. The snack bar (which seemed to offer only hot dogs and ice cream today). changing/rest rooms are at the back of the Clubhouse. All-in-all, this is a nice park for all ages. This year the rate seems to be $7 per car. Seniors - M-Th is free if you show your license.
