Its a nice beach but pretty expensive.. Visited on May 29, 2016 Sunday.. Weekend parking $16.. Entry fee was $9.50 (non residents).. After 6pm its $4.. We went there around 5.30, so waited to get the passes till 6.. Without a pass you can walk around the beach(strictly walking).. If you wanna sit, lie down or get into water, you have to get the pass.. Monitored by lifeguards.. And yeah, no coolers, food or drinks (they are strict about coolers), we took one, a lifeguard informed us that we are not supposed to have it and he waited till we put it back in the beach house.. You can bring your coolers and leave it in the beach house, play in water and get back to the beach house to eat and drink, and REPEAT ;) we also took a grill, which wasnt allowed either.. They have picnic areas where they give access to their grill, picnic areas can be booked at the beach house for $15, should leave by 8 pm though, so plan accordingly.. Beach house closes at 8 pm and beach at 10.30 pm for public.. If you wanna visit often, you might as well get a season pass, beach only access to four is $106.. If you are not planning on swimming or playing much in water or if you can take care of yourself you can walk a bit from the beach house, where you can enjoy the beach without paying and I was told there is a free parking close by, but you have to be an early bird to get your spot..
I like the beach. The food was okay but needs to be larger quantities for the price. Also they need a larger fryer because they can only cook one small order of fries at a time.. yes one order! The lady who took your order needs to be talked to about how to address customers. I found her to be a bit rude. There is a free side you can go to where you can bring a cooler but you cannot go into the water. Its great if you plan to go to hang out and tan. The paid side you cannot bring any food onto the beach but you can go into the water. There is also kayak rental and standing board rental
Beautiful beach with clear water but expensive for non-residents. Good thing its open for non-residents the first place. :) Parking is $15 and you have to be early in a morning on a weekend to get a spot. Entrance is $9 per person kids and adults equally. Get ready for lots of restrictions strictly enforced: no coolers, no food, no drinks just to name a few.
Clean n quite beach, lifeguard on duty. Food and coolers are prohibited, water bottles are allowed. Beach pass is 5 bucks, free off street parking available or about 15 bucks for parking close to the beach. Membership available.
Excellent beach which is very well maintained. Beach pass is $5 and parking $14-18.they also have a play area for kids, wash area, volley ball court, drinking water and a life guard. Restaurants are very close too.
Хорошее место для релакса, или просто для купания в озере Мичиган. Советую!
Do not go here! This beach charges $20 for parking and then $10 per person for using the beach. There are a lot of mansions in the area, hmm I wonder why it costs so much...
15 dollar parking, 10 dollar per person, and no cooler on said beach. we picked wrong coming here.
