“A great beach on Lake Erie”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nickel Plate Beach surprised us. The sand is very smooth and it is not over crouded. Parking is $5.00 and is not always collected depending on the weather.

“There are better beaches....”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Nickel Plate tends to have a lot of drift wood, which is nice. But with the break wall being close, you can also have a lot of rip tides that are dangerous when the water is choppy. Swim at your own risk...

“ick ohio beach”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

why does nothern ohio even attempt to showcase a beach? nasty coarse, dark sand you can cut your foot open on if you miss stepping on garbage and cigarette butts. no facilities to speak of, foul lake erie water that you'd better not injest.

Have spent many summer and fall days walking the beach here, as well as swimming here. Quiet, and easy to access.

“Nice lake view”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Parking fee on such a small beach... please city of Huron forget it! Water has a well-known under current which can be very scary. Be sure to watch the weather.
