We lived just down the road from here and used the beach every day during the summer. Lots of beautiful beach and clear blue water to enjoy. One of the natural wonders of the Alpena area.

We stopped by as we explored Alpena. It's a nice beach park and we got to enjoy the lake as we took a break from the car.

Poor Mich-e-ke-wis. It is the oldest park in our city. In its heyday, it boasted a wonderful Craftsman Bathhouse where we could change our clothes, rent a locker & buy snacks.

Beach volleyball league playing when we were there that was fun to watch. There is a wide sidewalk for wandering along the lake. We watched what looked like a paddleboard yoga class going on in the lake. How do they do that?? Playground equipment is there for kids, and a sandy beach area is well defined, although there is no... More
