  • We're spending a week in Grand Haven. On the recommendation of a friend, we decided to make the short drive to the beach at Kirk Park. So glad we did. Beautiful beach, way less crowded. We've already ...  more »
  • Went to the dog beach over 4th July weekend and we had a nice time. We got there about 4:30pm to try to avoid crowd and it wasn't too bad. Lots of friendly dogs and owners playing in surf. There isn't...  more »

  • Amazing place, friendly crowd and great vibes from the majestic lake superior. There is a small 200 yard walk from the parking lot to the beach. There are enough pick up bags placed on the ends of the beach. The water is crystal clear, view is gorgeous with dunes on the shore line. Dogs love this place and the off leash area isn't littered. My only problem was the bathroom weren't cleaned and the showers weren't working.
  • Such a great place to take sunset pictures! The beach in the evening is quiet and not a lot of people are around. The sand is so soft and not rocky at all. The walk to the beach through the woody area is kind of scary after sunset, but the views are beautiful. The lookout is a great place to take pictures as well.
  • Great walking trails moderate to hard, they currently are under a few construction areas due to the recent storm that area had but was able to still get in a couple miles. Definitely a must do trail if you love trees, sand, and the lake.
  • Great beach, great park. The playground wasn't to impressive and seemed a little under-kept, but my kids enjoyed themselves overall. The overlook up the stairs is very pretty.
  • Good for a nice hike. And beautiful views of lake Michigan. There is some steep terrain so it isn't for everyone.
