“Great beach for young and old”
Review of Fireman's Park

Fireman's Park
Attraction details
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Fireman's park has a large expanse of lawn with trees and picnic tables. The lawn ends at a modest size beach with very soft sand and moderate water temperature. There is plenty of shallow water for children to play in. There is a small concession stand and a bathroom facility. The beach and park were very clean.

Fireman's Park is just down from the Osthoff Resort and has a very nice beach and some of the clearest water I've seen in a lake. There are various watercraft (non-motorized) available for rental as well as motorized boating, skiing, etc. nearby. Bring your own food or purchase it at the shops nearby (literally across the street). This is a great family adventure.

I would agree with other reviewers however it i would consider a petite beach. When I think of Firemens Park/beach I think of the non motorized rentals and pontoon at the very near Oosthoff and motorized boat rental compete with tubing, water skiing, and wake boarding at nearby (with vehicle or walking) Victorian Village. VV boat rental comes with a pilot who knows what they are doing and can take newbies out to teach what ever kind of waterspout with completely provided equipment. VV has the big upper deck that can be seen just to the north of Firemens park. However I consider this a beach and not a playground.

I was pleasently suprised on my resent family day trip to this location. The beach is fantastic. It is located on the grounds of the Osthoff Hotel. The water is so crystal clear it's like you are swimming in some tropical ocean. Great to visit for all ages. There is a fenced off swim area for toddlers. Bring plenty of water toys because they don't supply any. Great beach, Great location & Crystal clear water. Well worth a visit.

I'm in Sheboygan, which is about 20 min drive.

Good- It's fairly close, always clean, you can bring your own food and grill out or purchase drinks, beer, pizzas and snacks in the little hut down by the lake. The price is $3 for adults and $1 for kids (1 and under free), for regulars like us they do offer family summer passes. The grassy area is always very clean and pretty much bug free, no getting eaten alive by the lake. The water is always warm (compaired to The Great Lake) When they have their fireman's picnic and bands there is usually free admission, beer, food, and activities. The fireworks are usually on the Friday (wkend before or after the 4th of July), which is great for people who have other plans or work on the 4th.

Bad-The bathrooms are at the top of the hill and the beach area is small and not very soft sandy, it's more like little gravel. The drive is inconvient from Sheboygan since someone decided to build 5 round abouts!

The Ugly-Do not forget your Sunscreen! There is virtually no cover or shade. The trees they do have are very small or sparce. No big maples to provide cover. Best times to go are late in the season August and in the late afternoon after 3pm. That is when the beach is almost void of people esp. around dinnertime.
