This park is great for picnics, and walking area along the lakefront. It truly is a hidden gem on the Lake. I walk along the lake April through December (of course weather permitting). The first Sunday in September the 82nd Airborne host a car show...More

We stopped here to photograph the North Pier Light, which is located at the far end of the beach and is easily accessible from the History Center parking lot. It was a windy and chilly day, but it was still enjoyable to walk the shore...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.

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

Simmons Island Beach is located across from the Kenosha Sculpture Walk, so you can actually walk from one to the other. At the end there is a large red lighthouse. We were there when Lake Michigan was really cooking, so we didn't get in to...More

Beautiful beach area, bad bath house. The beach was well maintained (water was COLD but that's expected), parking was great and the rocks are beautiful.
