I've always loved bon fires and/or camp fires, and have never had one on a beach. Well now I have and it was surely phenomenal, because there were "2" fires going at once several feet away from each other. It was truly a beautiful sight,...More

A clean beach and 2 lighthouses make this a beautiful park to visit. There’s a long pier to walk as well. Obviously a well loved area as it was a beautiful and hot day so it was packed. In addition, there was a pioneer market...More

What a wonderful beach. Lots of soft sand. Clean. Lake Michigan at its finest. The bath house, though, is pretty horrid. It looks beautiful, but might be in my top 10 of worst bathrooms... ever.

The beach area is wide, clean, and the amenities (toilets, shelters, parking) are quite adequate. The slope down to the beach from the parking area is a bit challenging as it is loose sand and many tree roots sticking out. The grandkids loved wading in...More

Great beach that has an old bath house. Small Marian on one side of the island. A rendezvous is held here each year and it's great to take a dip if you get too warm. Adequate parking unless an event is being held.

If you are into scenery and a beautiful lakefront, this is for you. Kenosha lakefront Simmons Beach is clean and now your walk can include heading to the sculptures. Just looking out on vast Lake Michigan is wonderful. The miles of beach including sandy sections...More

We saw "well-behaved" dogs (and owners) both times we visited Simmons Island Beach.
