“scenic views of Lake Michigan!”
Grand Haven State Park has a beautiful sandy shore on Lake Michigan along the west side of the park and the Grand River along the north side of the park. The park consists entirely of beach sand and provides scenic views of Lake Michigan and the Grand Haven pier and lighthouse. The world's largest Musical Fountain is located nearby, with nightly performances through the summer months. The Harbor Trolley travels throughout the Tri-Cities area and is a fun way to get to the various shops and restaurants in the area. From the last weekend in July through the first full weekend in August, the Coast Guard Festival is held.
Stayed at the campground for a night--that was great! Walking distance from the beach/lighthouse pier. Very nice shower facilities. It was surprising that the campground was not grass and dirt, but sand... which became kind of a pain with the wind blowing it into our tent all night long. Also, we were the only people camped in a tent that I saw--everyone else had RVs.
Nice state park, nice beach, but crowded, oh so crowded. If you like it quieter, head up the coast to PJ Hoffmaster.
We visited 2 days in a row. The beach was great. Clear water, nice sand. The walk to the lighthouse was awesome. And if you get hungry, the Electric Hero sandwich shop will deliver there!
