    Great public beach. Park is free, but parking will cost you. Currently $9 for a day or $31 for an annual pass.

    If you are a MI resident get the recreation tag for your plate. It makes visiting the state parks a breeze.

    They work to make the park handicap accessible with beach and water wheelchairs so everyone can enjoy the beach.

    When applying sun block don't forget the backs of your hands or you will get ridiculous red marks like you've been pissing off 50s school teachers.
