Pere Marquette Park reviews
This beach is beautiful! The sand is clean and the parking is so close. Walking out to the lighthouse is a nice experience.

The sand was well maintained and very clean. The parking was free and so easy... just a few steps from the beach. I really enjoy coming here and then heading to The Deck for a bite to eat. A must visit beach location! *Edit* summer of 2020 the beach implemented park n pay meters, and the meter maids are on top of it!
Hot day, warm water, lots of beach goers, typical Pure Michigan day. Watched boats at the channel and then dinner at The Dock. Waited only 20 minutes on Saturday evening, food came in like 5 minutes from ordering. Unbelievable, and it was good. Nice views all around of the beach and lake. I had the pork tacos, a little messy but excellent. My wife had the bowl, which is like the tacos, sans the tortilla (and less messy).
This is a beautiful place with lots of beach and shore line for the whole family. It's a great place to bring the family for a out door meal and lots of things for the smaller kids to play. There are lots of paved pathways to walk along while watching boats, people watch, walk your dog,wind surfers and fishermen. Also a great place to watch the sunset or a storm coming across the lake.
This beach is very pleasant and clean. The beach is wide and contains a lot of sand unlike some other beaches in the area. There’s also a playground and snack shack by the beach. If you stay late enough, you can even see a nice sunset over the water. I’d recommend going here for a good beach experience on Lake Michigan.
This was a great place for a family day at the beach! It was clean, had restrooms, an outdoor shower, and the lighthouses were really neat! There is also a BBQ restaurant that smelled amazing. We didn't eat there, as we brought a lunch, but it looked like a neat place, and it got quite busy later in the day. I would recommend taking folding chairs and some type of shade. We went on a Thursday morning and it didn't get busy until mid afternoon.
