The beach was clean. There was plenty of trash cans close by. The marina bathroom could use some updating. The new beachside restaurant looked very nice but we didn't have a change to eat there.

Beautiful beach access for a family beach day! Great lighthouse walk and access. Fish on the pier or play on the playground. They have something for everyone! Oh and even have a zoo nearby.

They used the ramp to launch hobi cat sail boats, might be steeper though. Drive in park then go to left down the middle road and there is another area to park and the sand is right there. Beach a little farther though.

High 70's sometimes in the 80's because of summer. However, the water temp is usually cold until August. Great beaches though. You will have a great time. There are sand dunes all along coast up through Michigan.
