  • What a beautiful park! It was cold and windy it was still SO pretty! A great place to watch a sunset! The beach was very clean. The parking this time of year was free, but the bathrooms are...

  • We visited on October 10th, 2022, so it was starting to get colder down near Lake Michigan. However, we did not let that stop us from getting in some very nice photo opportunities of the park area...

  • Perfect as always. The town is great. Wonderful shops and food throughout. Pizza by the splash pad is a must and fishing the inlet never disappoints. The beach is always busy but with plenty of parking and room for others. Has good hills to ride and skate while being mindful of others. No signs posted at all and the boardwalk has plenty of room for everyone walking or riding. They have a beach house with ice cream and all the beach needs. The atmosphere is always great. Highly recommend this place.
  • Lovely beach for a simple hang out to chill and spend time with family and friends. Sand is clean and soft. There is a playground, and some swings. Decent eateries within walking distance of 10 minutes. Head over earlier for a warmer experience - it gets chilly as the sun goes down.
  • This was my mine and my husband's first time here and we'll definitely be going back. We ate at Silver Beach Pizza and it was some of the best pizza we've ever had. We took our chairs and sat close to the tide coming in and I walked along the beach collecting rocks, which I found some pretty cool ones.
  • Beautiful park that fronts Lake Michigan with stunning view of lighthouses and piers. Playground for kids. Beach volleyball courts, concession stand, bathrooms, paved trail connecting to Howard family Trail. Paid parking is limited in season. Beautiful sunsets and walking distance to many other local attractions. No dogs in beach but allowed in paved trail.
  • One of the best lake Michigan beaches. Fun for the whole family. The beach area is pretty big and well maintained. Few lifeguard posts with couple lifeguards at each. There are few beach volleyball fields, kids playground area and splashing fountains. Paid parking lot 15$ non residents
