Enjoyed our time at the beach.
Nice sandy beach. The water was clean and calm. Was fairly busy and somewhat difficult to find as there was very little signage. Was disappointed to find there were no restrooms! For $5 a car, and as busy as they were, you would think this is something they could provide.

Has a playground, grills, bathrooms, volleyball, and picnic tables. $5 fee to park, but when we got there at 8am, no one wa there to pay. Water was beautiful (cold) and the rocks were perfect for skipping. Took some great pics of Lake Erie and Huron pier.

I visited Nickel Plate Beach for the first time this last week and was surprised by how much it felt like I was standing on a beach in California again. Had i been blindfolded and taken there i would have sworn i was at the ocean. It was breathtaking! They have a nice playground area for young children to play and it was not over crowded. It was later in the day when we arrived so we didn't have to pay the parking fee. The only draw back to this beach that i could see was the dead fish! However as i continued my vacation i found that this is a problem all along Erie Lake. I would recommend this beach as it is beautiful despite the dead fish.

me and my family and kids went there and it was so fun, it nice to just find a spot and listen to the waves or just relax and enjoy family time, swimming was nice, had great views loved watching the boats and the view was breathtaking, very peaceful and relaxing there is nothing like it, the 5 dollar parking fee isnt even that bad either just to enjoy a little slice of heaven for a while.

i was there in tne 2013 summer...i recently moved t ohio then and i loved it quiet, beautiful, and extremely peaceful. not over crowd and there is restaurants close by for food in less than 5 min ride. the only negative is the portable potties...but it beats the woods. and they where keep clean. when i visited...ty for the great memories among friends. my kids enjoy the play area and other families where enjoying the volleyball nets, floting devices and swimming. 5 dollar parking fee and i didnt notice a lifeguard on duty but it was nice and quiet day at the lake....
