We asked the locals where to find the best beach and were directed here. Beautiful beach, clean, not crowded. It is a little small as it is surrounded by private property but very swimmable. Drawbacks are that is a little bit difficult to access. Hiking...More

I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and just visited this park for this first time during the summer of 2017. It is spectacular. While it has limited parking, if you can get a parking spot, take time to walk up the dune...More

This small park at the end of West 142nd Ave is like unwrapping your favorite candy you only get once in awhile and only comes in a small size but is a treasured treat. You park and think, is it worth the park and walk?...More

The Laketown Beach is along the shores of Lake Michigan, but is on the other side of a huge sand dune. There are stairs and boardwalks, but the high winds through the year fill the steps and boardwalks. It is a lot of stairs up...More
