I've gone to this beach, since the 1960's. It is a great little beach for swimming and sunbathing and a picnic. Good for families.

You need a good map or getting the information from a local person to find that well hidden beach. Its a Huron public beach with a 5$ parking fee, but no lifeguard. There are three beach volleyball courts and a nice, oversized Adirondack chair, which...More

We were overwhelming pleased with the cleanliness of the beach, the water and the playground area (except for a few bees that were in the area). My 4, 5 and 8 year old grandchildren had a blast! Looking forward to returning again. $5 to park.

I can't say enough good things about this beach! It was clean, had a playground, and bathrooms (well, port a potties- but they were clean!) nearby. There is a $5 fee for parking, but we didn't mind. If we are ever in this area again...More

This beach has potential to be great. But its filthy. Dead fish litter the shoreline, debris everywhere. We paid $5 to park there so I know people are there than can clean this place up.

We stopped here on a day trip to Huron, and we had a wonderful time. The sand was clean and soft, and we walked up and down the beach looking for beach glass.

Nickel Plated Beach is off the beaten path, but well worth the trouble of finding it. The beach is broad and sandy with lots of room for beach fun or just getting a tan. It can get crowded due to all of the little cottages...More

Not that I've ever noticed but I've never checked though either. This is a smaller beach with the bare minimals.
