We went to Lake Superior on a warm day with the kids. The lake was refreshing enough but the majority of the "beach" is actually green grass. It gets really crowded too. But they offer clean bathrooms and reasonably priced snacks which makes life easy.

This is a great park, very peaceful and natural. Open spaces, the lake is crystal clear, and the wildlife is plentiful. The only drawback is that this place is understaffed. But, if you're looking for a peaceful place to recondition your brain and body, give this place a shot.

My daughters and I were looking for a beach close to the resort we were staying at and found that this was only 15 minutes away. Beautiful grassy hill leading down to a small, clean beach. The beach wasn't actually open yet, but the park employee cleaning the area said it was fine to sit on the sand. There were... More

Did not stay long here as it was closed for the season. Wanted to use the washroom but even the Portaloo was locked!

We were looking for a place to picnic and headed for Lake Superior. Upon arrival, it was so crowded, there wasn't even a parking space (on a Sunday). We drove another few feet and low and behold, there was another park, with free parking (as opposed to Superior, where there was an admission fee). We had a nice enjoyable picnic.

Not much to do here, so if all you wish to do is lay back and watch a small lake, this is your spot! Limited facilities in my opinion, as it is a small park.

Lots of great fishing, clean shores and water. Lots of trails to hike around the lake and surrounding area. Close enough to Bethel Woods to hear free concert music!
