4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

I like to duck in here towards sunset and take photographs. I've never had to pay to park, but I'm never there during the heat of the day. It's a scenic little spot off the main road.

“Great Place to Soak up the Sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Nickel Plate Beach is a public beach open to anyone visiting Huron. There is a $5 entrance fee per car. There is a small playground, beach volleyball, and lots of sand and sun. Bring your own snacks and drinks with you as well. This is a great place to spend the day as a family- but be aware of the weather and the current because there are no lifeguards on duty, and sadly, accidental drownings happen every summer on Lake Erie.

No dead fish! Well groomed! Beautiful sunset! Great playground! Great soft and clean sand! Just wish it was not near a power plant to the left :(

“For a lake, it's not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Full disclosure, I'm originally from the South, so when I think of a "beach" I think of white Gulf sand and blue salty water. This is not that, obviously. However, the sand was clean-- I didn't notice a lot of debris and I didn't have any misgivings about my 2 year olds walking around barefoot. There is a fun play structure for younger kids and two volleyball nets set up. The picnicing area is small, but well kept. My biggest frustration is the lack of non port-a-potty bathrooms & changing areas. The cost is just $5 per car load.
