Great beach, just small. Visited this beach on a sunday in aug and it was beyond slammed with people. One thing has changed on this beach, it is a leashed beach now. It is not suppose to be free range. That being said, there were...More

This is a nice quiet park. The beach is small but pretty clean. There are restrooms and it looks like four covered picnic shelter areas that can be rented from the City or County, not sure how that works.

The dog beach is terrific. Best spot around for an active dog to have some fun in the fresh water. Parking is plentiful. Just don't let the kids wander back into the woods away from the beach, as they may encounter some surprising activities.

I brought my dog here so she could spend the day off leash playing in the water. If you don't want to share the beach with dogs, don't come here! People seemed to do their best to keep their dogs on the "dog side" of...More

This is the place you (and others) bring their dogs to the beach!! Loved watching the dogs playing and chasing in the water. Some very impressive Canine swimmers and God looking pups show up here!! Get your dog on!!

Day use park with excellent beach access, picnic areas, and dune stairs. No fees. Main beach area is off limits to dogs. However, the dog beach starts here and runs about 3/4 mile to Pere Marquette Park. This off leash dog area is wonderful with...More

When I go to heaven, I want it to be just like Kruse Park. There are all kinds of dogs playing in harmony in the beautiful fresh lake and a soft breeze keeps dogs and people alike cool. I love to go here without my...More

This used to be my favorite beach but is now over-ridden with dogs (dog beach at northern end.). Also, the dune walk is broken on several places and was just boarded up instead of repaired. Disappointing.

There are A LOT. I didn't count them, and there are too many to guess. If you're worried about being able to make it up and down the stairs, just know they also have handicap accessible ramps in addition to the stairs.
