Holland State Park Beach gives you everything you would expect from a public beach in Michigan. Beautiful wide sand beaches as far as you can see in either direction. A light house attached to a long pier that you can walk out onto. Fascinating people watching and boat watching. Good sized crowds and nice people. Close proximity to Holland (a... More

This park is a nice place to go. There is a huge concession area for drinks and food as well as changing cloths and bathrooms in there. It is the home of a very famous light house known as Big Red and you can walk way out on the pier into the lake itself to get photos of some of... More

The beaches at the state park rival those on the gulf coast of Florida...with one clear advantage, no sharks. The state park is well maintained, family friendly and positioned at the mouth of Lake Mac. This makes for some good sight-seeing as boats enter and leave the channel.

The state park is a great place for families. The beach is clean and comfortable. The pier out into the lake is scenic. A great family place.

Family friendly clean beach! We visited twice last year because the beach is so clean. There is a small store to purchase anything you may have forgotten and volleyball nets. The only downfall is that the bathrooms could of used a little more attention.

Still a great place to visit, even in early March! Great views and nice quiet walks in the dunes and on the beach. Just a short trip from Holland!

A friend who stays in Holland regularly recommended we visit this beach. We were spending a week in South Haven and taking a day trip to see the area. It was in the high 80s, sunny, and about 3 in the afternoon--and understandably crowded. After a hike up Mount Pisgah, and a visit to a corndog stand, we were ready... More

We live in Holland, so we are spoiled by our proximity to gorgeous Lake Michigan. Inexpensive public beach access with lots of parking, clean bathrooms, beach concessions - what's not to love? There is a campground onsite so you can stay (if you make reservations 6 months in advance) or just come to the beach for the day to swim,... More
