good beach & views

a short 20 min. drive from Sarnia Ont with a good beach on Lake Huron & grassed picnic areas. Usually not very busy as it's somewhat of a 'hidden secret'.

We stopped here for lunch just to walk along the lake. I know they're going for letting nature go on her own these days but the fishy smell at the beach was awful. You had to walk down the beach a ways to get away from it. The beach is sandy, looked a little deep for children to swim. Looks... More

An update from my post of September 30, 2014. Not much has changed and that is good. Noted that several photos posted by Bianca_Dr are not from the Highland Glen area. There is a boat launch, free until Spring of 2017 but no surfboard rentals or stairs showing going down to the beach. We enjoyed a picnic here on November... More

Awesome beach. Odd parking, not much else there. Picnic area and outhouse available. Not the greatest for small children unless you are only there to swim.

There is no doubt that this is a beautiful view on Lake Huron from a great vantage point up on the cliff. It is worth stopping in to see on your way to or from somewhere else. We sat, had a picnic, took a little walk and left. For boaters there is a boat launch but I have no knowledge... More
