This place gets packed on weekends by a lot of Chicago people. Early spring or late fall are the times to go. Some very nice hiking trails. The beach is across the road from the park and isn't very wide or long.

We use to take our kids here during summer and was surprised to see that they now charge to park, go on beach and have many more restrictions. It seemed like a commercial spot rather than a fun beach for families now.
