  • We asked the locals where to find the best beach and were directed here. Beautiful beach, clean, not crowded. It is a little small as it is surrounded by private property but very swimmable...

  • Nice little beach if you can handle the walk. Laketown is a very small but pleasantly sandy beach. The trek from the parking lot is a bit arduous as many of the steps are completely covered with sand. You basically have to scale a small dune to get to the beach. There is private property flanking both sides of the beach, so there is very limited space.
  • Beautiful beach but a hike we weren’t ready for! The stairs to the top of the dune was covered with a ton of sand so it felt like you were climbing the dune itself. The beach itself was small and limited in space, but was well maintained; no rocks or logs. There was a staircase from the beach to the top of the dune which gives breathtaking views.
  • Nice little beach along Lake Michigan. Large sand dune climb to get there. The first part used to have steps but are almost completely covered. The set of steps going down to the lake are nice ... around 180 steps.
  • Lake Michigan is beautiful anywhere (including here)! The staircase has seen better days as the dunes continue to shift without regard to measly human creations. The remaining west side is leaning precariously and will likely be condemned soon. Enjoy it while you can 😀
  • Gorgeous beach with dunes.. A must visit place for watching a beautiful sunset... Easy to access from the parking area with some stairs and climbing down the dunes.. walking back to the parking lot is not harder with dunes.. parking is free.. They have separate stairs from the beach area to climb up and see the beach view and come back to the parking lot instead of dunes..
