Silver Beach is a popular place to visit. It's maintained well, there's volleyball nets, and you can rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. It's always fun to walk down the shore and down the pier to see the light house, watch the boats, and watch fishermen. You can also see beautiful sunsets at night that lots of people like to sit... More

This is a nice beach with a nice view. But, goodness its crowded. We Went on a weekday in the Am and it was next to impossible to find a spot where someone was not sitting on top of you. The sand there is so deep its a workout to get anywhere near the water. There is no shade at... More

Can be crowded in the summer holidays but can always find a spot to lounge. The county keeps it clean, theres concessions during the summer

We made sure we were at the beach each night so that we could see the sunsets. Even when is was cloudy out, the color spectrum's were beautiful.

It is a very clean park and beach. A great place to hang out with family members of all ages. We usually spend the day there with our tents and grill food and play in the water. I highly recommend it,

This beach used to be very quiet. Not anymore, in summer it's still a great place, kid friendly with an enclosed carousel for kids to ride and a large splash pad just a short walk away. The splash pad is free. The carousel is very affordable.The weekends get very crowded by noon and the sunsets are unbeatable.

Stopped here while driving on hwy 196 to another destination. It was quite cold but still a beautiful spot to jump out of the car to stretch our legs and enjoy the view. There is a park play place for kids but everything else is shut down for the off season months. Parking was free but there is an entrance... More

Our friends in St. Joseph, MI live adjacent to the park right next to the beach. The park was a nice area for walking their Yellow Lab, but the wind, cold, and sand blown streets makes the beach less than hospitable during this time of year. Surfers clad in full wet suits were still attempting to catch the elusive waves.... More

An easy place to bring young children. The beach slopes off gently and it is not very crowded on week days. If the wind is from the west, the water is warmer than usual.
