We did not use the beach or any of the facilities, so I cannot comment on that. We went here to get pictures of the Big Red Lighthouse & view a sunset. Just seeing these two things makes a visit to the park well worth it. Please note that you cannot get to the lighthouse from this park - it... More

Michigan is awesome! We chose to move to this wonderful area 28 years ago. The beach is always clean. You can also walk out on the breakwater wall. The swimming area is well marked. It is easy to find charter fishing boats. You can also fish off of the piers. The park was expanded and there is a walkway next... More

It was a cool windy day when we walked the beach and were surprised that weather conditions were so different as soon as we left the beach area. Beautiful beach with a view of the DeBoer house and picturesque lighthouse.

I love walking out on the pier with water all around me. It can be any season or any time of day. I like to talk with the people fishing, I like to hear the water lap on the rocks around me. When I get out to the end, I often do tai chi or meditate. Last time I was... More

I have been to many beaches in the States and other countries and Holland State Park might be number one in my book. Harbour Island in the Bahamas is quit nice also but this one in Michigan is only 10 miles from home!! You will love going here!!

This campground is beautiful! Very clean (because you are on blacktop) park with very wide sites all around. They do offer sites with water/electric hook up but nearly impossible to get one. The beach/lighthouse areas were pristine with beautiful sunsets at the marina and beach areas. We did not have a very far drive to local restaurants or activities. You... More

This is a state park on Lake Michigan. If you do not have a resident sticker, you will have to pay to get in. Clean sand beach, bath house and bathrooms. Board walk, playground, beach volleyball, biking and many more fun things to do.
