Great spot to picnic with great covered picnic area and a play area with volleyball nets set up for the kids right on the beach. Beach is clean and safe. Huron's best place for summer beach fun!

This is a beautiful public beach, very clean, great parking, kids' play equipment and volleyball nets. The only reason that I gave it only a 4 is that there are not miles and miles to walk. But still a fabulous beach!!

We went here on Sunday of Labor Day weekend to spend the day. The beach was very dirty, lots of garbage at the shoreline as well as on the walkway to the parking lot. Not sure that I would go back

We were excited to find this beach, as most beaches in this area have shelly/rocky beaches that are hard to access. This beach had a nice park, picnic areas and restrooms. Our 11 year olds enjoyed their time there.

This was the last beach on our trip and I will have to say it was one of the better beaches along Lake Erie... It actually had sand and you did not have to have water shoes on to walk the beach. One thing I...More

Bath house pretty crummy but beach is super nice. Soft sand and debris free. Fun to collect flat rocks for painting.

I've gone to this beach, since the 1960's. It is a great little beach for swimming and sunbathing and a picnic. Good for families.

No, you can walk the pier, but the Lighthouse is not open to the public.

Not that I've ever noticed but I've never checked though either. This is a smaller beach with the bare minimals.
