This is a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan. The only downside, the access into the park can be long backups on busy summer weekends. There is also camping available here. An enjoyable activity standing along the channel into Lake Macatawa, boatwatching on warm summer days....More

Beautiful, huge beach...clean water with sandy bottom. Nice Center to buy anything you might have forgotten. Wooden walkway out to the beach making it easier to walk then walking in sand. Beautiful place to spend the day.

Get there early it does get very busy here during peak summer times. We even visit in the fall and its a great beach. Play ground, restrooms, and a nature building. State Park so there is an entry fee.

Great beach scene from inside the car. What a great state park. Big waves. So no walking on pier. Treat the Great Lakes with respect year round.

They do not allow alcohol on the beach but I have seen it in the adjoining campground. Even though I think it is not allowed there either.
