I see that there is a harbor for speed boats, sail boats, etc... but is there a spot for fishing boats anywhere near Holland State Park?
There is fishing access all along the channel and a couple of spots where there are piers to fish off from and I believe both are handicap accessible.
Not sure what type fishing you are looking for but right across the street from the park is Lake Makatawa. This lake discharges directly into Lake Michigan. It offers a wide variety of fish species and types of fishing.
There are at least two places to launch fishing boats near Holland State park. One is the public launch on Ottawa Beach road very near the park entrance and the other is off Douglas Ave. on Howard ave. Both will put you on Lake Macatawa which leads out to the big lake. Fishing can be done on both lakes.
Hello! Yes, the channel is the link to Lake Macatawa, lots of room for fishing boats! You can also fish in Lake Michigan, there is plenty of room! There are public access points in lake macatawa to access both Lake Mac and the big lake. Hope this helps.
