  • Beautiful park, great swimming beach (when Lake Michigan is warm enough (somewhat rare)). Good hiking and XCountry skiing. Petty old quarry to walk around. Lots of deer (get close, they are pretty tame). Some old "ruins" left over from old stone quarry digs. Parking is the only prob, it is limited near the beach and one needs to take a (provided) shuttle from a remote lot during crowded summer swimming days. Enjoy!
  • BEAUTIFUL!! Simply beautiful. Cabins, very nice areas for tents or campers. Quarry with sitting areas all the way around. No boats or swimming, in the quarry. Peaceful place.
  • The campsites are clean and well-kept. You will have to drive by to find ones with shade, however. If you are reserving online, I remember sites 223, 225, and 213 have shade. If you need an electric site they have a whole loop of it and site 101 is super shady. The beach is excellent! Lake Michigan in all its beauty without the Milwaukee smell. Clean beach, but get there early it fills up after 1pm! If you like history visit Quarry lake on the campground and walk the foot path. Old building foundations and interesting history of the town that once existed because of the limestone quarry.
  • We love this beach. It is always clean and not to crowded. We usually find really cool rock on the South dog beach. The north beach has nice sand for kids to play in. This beach also used to be a little village so lots of informational signs along the paths!
  • One of the best campgrounds I've ever been to. Most of the camp sites have a lot of privacy. Brilliant place.
