Nice County Park with lots of winding trails, stairways and beach access. You can make a long challenging walk or a relatively simple walk through the sand dunes and out to Lake Michigan. Nice views and trails. Dogs are allowed on leash on the trails...More

Such an amazing place to get a hike/walk in. The views are amazing and the lake is absolutely beautiful. A great place to see some amazing sunsets for sure.

This place is by far the best beach in Ottawa County. It's very clean, wide, and almost never crowded.
