Holland State Park is the absolute best!! From views of our famous "Big Red" lighthouse, which is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the State of Michigan, to our sandy beaches, it is a trip worth taking!! I grew up and live in Holland,...More

This park is the place for people of all ages and abilities. There are cement walkways that you can take a wheelchair all the way to the shore. There is a very nice building, housing lockers, showers, restrooms, a good burger and hot dog stand,...More

When we arrived to the beach not many people were there the weather was stormy. The kids had fun watching the storm roll in.

Even a cold windy rainy this is worth a visit, walk through the sand, walk out as far as you can. Yes, we would have taken the dune buggy ride.

Grew up here, and now that we live 1200 miles away, I need to see the beach each time I return. Beautiful beach at any time of year.

We stayed at the Pineloop, I don’t think the beach sites were that nice, more like a parking lot of RVs. Pineloop was really nice, bathrooms are brand new. The area is very nice too, looking forward to coming back with our son.

The sandy beach is large with fine, brown sand. The parking lot is adequate for a large number of cars. The restrooms were abysmal! No locks on the stalls, cigarette butts, filthy floors and soiled toilet seats. The entire pavilion looked as if it had...More

Macatawa lake is right in front of Holland state park and probably 30 mins tomorrow lake Michigan. They are both beautiful but macatawa lake is less busy if you find the right spot.
