  • This is an amazing park. It's a park in 2 parts, a nearly mile long beach and a lakefront park a quick walk from the beach. The beach is recovering from record high water levels which shifted a lot....  more

  • My girls and I spent some time here. We enjoyed ourselves. There weren't many people on our end of the beach, there weren't children running and screaming, I saw a Sheriff walking around and the people were there to have a peaceful time. We will definitely go back before school starts.
  • The beach itself is very well maintained, clean, and family friendly. The day I went I was impressed to see some small waves, which was more than I expected. However, upon going in the water, I was whistled out because apparently they only let people dip their feet in when there’s waves. I don’t understand the huge freak out over simple waves when I just want to go swimming. This defeated the whole purpose of my trip to this beach. The beach itself is beautiful and has distant views of the Chicago skyline, but my experience wasn’t great. All in all, you’ll probably have a good time on most days, but avoid if there’s waves.
  • Love this beach - wish everyone who enjoys its beauty would clean up their own trash.
  • Not the nicest beach but its still fun
  • Beach is nice and clean. $25 to park all day or 5 an hour. Kind of pricy for parking. Credit card only to pay for parking.
