Very relaxing and beautiful park situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. Great place to walk, jog or run, or to play on the beach.

What a great beach only 50 min north of Chicago. Lovely large beach, not crowded, free entrance, free parking, bathrooms and playground onsite.

We have brought my mother 150 miles to this beach/park because she like the view of the lake for her birthday celebration. Plan on doing it again next year.
