"Very quiet and peaceful place. Spent time at the park to unwind after work and found it to be a great stop. Hiking the dunes is a great experience, but with moderately deep sand it can be strenuous so plan accordingly.
Next to no waves the day I was there, just a beautiful sunset fading behind the calm waters of Lake Michigan. Definitely worth the trip!"
"What a wonderful place to spend the day, all facilities to make it an easy at the beach time. Bring your umbrella or tent, bring your food and that's pretty much it, you're set.
Bring a good pair of shoes to hike up the dunes, or simple walk along the shores. Get some piece in the quiet up there.”
"Excellent campground and park. Loved the huge dog beach. The trails we hiked were mainly sand, scenic, but tough. This would be 5 stars except at night you can hear road noise from I94 traffic.
We camped in August and the cicadas did a decent job of drowning out the road noise.”
