Grand Haven State Park
A beautiful 48 acre park that features the shore of 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 paved seasonal camping sites and views of Lake Michigan and the Grand Haven pier are available on site.
On the 4th of July 2012 the restrooms were the worst I've ever seen in a State Park ever. The trash cans everywhere were over flowing. I was Super disappointed. We have attended that State Park for the last 20 plus years. You would have needed a shovel to get the nasty trash off the floors in the bathrooms, and every toilet was plugged. There were porta pottys outside I would have rather have used. I wouldn't even attempt to wash my hands in there.
Wonderful sand and plenty of beach to "stake a claim" for the day along the water. With the mild Michigan weather and warm breezes, it is easy to spend the whole day with the sand between your toes. Since the weather is mild, do not plan on truly enjoying the beach until 10 or after as the sand is quite chilly!
I go to Grand Haven every year for the last five years. I love the beach there and especially when the coast guard festival is going on. I an going there for my honeymoon and can't wait to go there. Its my favorite place.
This beachfront campground is beautiful and the town awesome. However, the campsites are the smallest we have ever tried to fit into. Never made for campers and their vehicles. In fact, you are expected to park your vehicles 300-400 yards away in a fisherman's parking area. No one tells you this when you check in. They also assigned us a site way too small for a 35' fifth wheel, and we had to move.
After setting up in our second assigned site, our slideout hung over the yellow line about 6 inches and a park ranger left a warning on our camper to move it over even though the campground was only l/3 full. This was ridiculous since lots of people parked their vehicles in empty campsites without any warnings being posted on their vehicles. We had to hookup again, move out and squeeze in one more time.
The park ranger did state that they are working on the problem.
I love the way the set up is laid out; everything is along the shore in a U shape rotation, so to see everything. I love the hill side attractions, and the house that has a tree growing through it. The shops are excusitly in fashion and have a good sense of the things tourist want to see and buy. The one thing I don't like is it seems the only thing to do is the beach area stuff, outside of the harbor there isn't much to do. However, I recommend it to anyone who loves the beach and the tourist beach town setting.
I love Grand Haven State Park. It's only $20 for a year long pass. This is a great value especially if you live in Grand Haven, like I do. The scenery is fantastic. It feels as if you are in a paradise, but your really just in Grand Haven. I recommend this beach if you are anywhere in West Michigan.
One of Michigan's most popular state parks offering a long, sandy beach along Lake Michigan. There are two large campgrounds,
picnic areas, a playground, beach house, boat launch, and concession stands.
