They charge $8 a person to enter (they check wristbands). It's Wisconsin, so the beach is very small. It is well-maintained, however. We gave it a pass.

Clean restrooms up the stairs and across the lawn. Sandy bottom near the shore. Has 2 piers to swim out and jump off. Did not see any food or drink for sale in immediate area.

simple, small beach. one entrance so people can get jammed up, no ramp for wheelchair or strollers. no benches around the beach, so no place to sit but in the sand - so if you don't want sand in your shoes, you need to remove them before you come down the stairs.

Beach was very popular! Pretty and very clean! I liked that they had docks that you could swim out to and jump off of! A great place for families with children to go to for the afternoon!!

Small beach - but to be fair I'm comparing to lake Michigan beaches that are closer to home. Family friendly, bathrooms are what you would expect for a beach. If you want parking, get there when it opens at 9, it fills up QUICK. Life guards are present and then have docks that you can jump off of. It got too crowded around 2pm and that's when I left. People were no longer keeping distance from each other, people sitting a foot away from me. It got crammed. COVID isn't gone, but I understand people have different comfort levels. I felt uncomfortable at that point so left.

Overall nice beach. Nice people. Relaxing environment. Walking distance from a few hotels.

Not a lot if choices for a sandy beach if you live in the midwest. This serves that purpose for these hot summer days. $8 admission. Beach was very busy on a Monday, but it was hot. Beach was clean.

Decent beach but nothing special. $8 per person entry fee, (kids 6 & under free). No concession stands. Life guards on duty.

The beach is small, and I imagine it could get very crowded on the weekend. We were there mid-week and it was still plenty crowded by lunchtime. But we got there early, not long after opening, so plenty of space to set-up our chairs & shade umbrella. We were there for an entire day - there was no issue taking a cooler with bottled water and lunch, but they did ask to check my cooler (no glass or alcohol allowed on the beach).

It's a family-friendly beach - the beach crowd was probably 80% families/parents/grandparents with young children, and 20% teenagers. Rope buoys mark the edge of the sandbar... as long as you stay within the buoys, the water never gets deeper than about 3 feet. If you want to swim beyond the buoys, there are docks you can jump off a little further out. As a parent, it's nice to take the kids to a little beach with lifeguards. However, the lifeguards didn't seem very attentive, so you definitely want to watch your kids yourself.

The sand was very clean, and the water was relatively clear. However, we did see a couple dead fish and a lot of water grass floating ashore. If told about it, the staff was quick to clean up these things.

Bathroom/shower rooms were handy, and the outdoor shower was great for rinsing off our feet before leaving.
