Went to hang at the beach and dunes Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Just a beautiful spot. The south beach has nice flush toilet restrooms and shower houses. North beach is where the dogs can go. Both are clean, very nice. Camping areas looked great. Nature Center is one of the best I have ever seen at a state park. The sound of the surf, the gorgeous blue water of Lake Michigan - you would swear you were on the ocean minus the salty air. Fellow park and beach goers were very friendly. A great way to wrap up summer! We plan to go back next year to camp!

We drove up here for the day and loved it. The beach is great. We didn't camp, but the camping looked nice too. I was a little surprised of the size of the park; for some reason, I was expecting a large park and it wasn't too big. I still want to get back there.

We discovered this park last summer and are so excited to be going back next week! The beach is incredible...does not even feel like Lake Michigan. Its like being in the Carolina's! Soft white sand, and best of all, it is dog friendly!!! The weekend we went, the dog beach was practically empty and we were able to tire out the fur babies, so we could kick back and relax at the camp site later that night. The campsites are nice. We prefer more secluded sites and there are some to chose from. The bathrooms are clean, the grounds are well maintained, and people are quiet at night. Not a party campground. Nice and relaxing weekend away from home.

Also: the office has beach wheelchairs available! I have never seen one before and thought it was super cool they had them for use for the public!

My husband and I so enjoyed hiking up and down the dunes along Lake Michigan thanks to the wonderful boardwalk running parallel to the lake. What a gorgeous state park! It was a cool and breezy weekday, so the beach and hills were ours alone. We felt like explorers discovering uncharted wild land. Then we came upon a few families with children running up and down the sandy terrain. The waves were high, so no one was venturing into the water at that time, but it was breathtaking just the same.

My wife and I have done volunteer work in state parks from coast to coast, so we have seen quite a number of state parks. Kohler-Andrae ranks in the top five parks we have visited. The park is clean and well maintained. The staff is professional and friendly. They have a very nice family campground and a top notch nature center. Given all these factors, and then the beautiful location on the lakeshore, you have a real winner.
