Great park. I went to the beach and it was a great little spot. The water is pretty shallow and calm so it’s pretty fun to chill in. The lifeguards do a good job as well. Plenty of stuff to do. The scenery is really great too! The swimming area is pretty small, though which does limit the fun a little bit. Still a great place though.

4th of July, Beaver Island State Park is a nice place to visit. Of course you have the beaches... Go pick out a picnic table with a grill, set up your cook out, eat to your heart content, then head down to the beach to cool off in the lake

Not my favorite state park I've been to, but always enjoyable. There are other outdoor places I can go without spending the $7 to get in. A good choice if conveniently located for you.

Fun little beach and a cool playground for the kiddos. Nice area for walking and mild hiking. Just wanted to note... The little moth flies are terrible by the water. Next time we may try bug spray. #beachhairdontcare

If you are a kayaker, there are three great places to launch kayaks here at Beaver Island. Near the Marina is an easy access launch to the inner loop with calm waters filled with wildlife and a chance to give the Niagara River a try. The southernmost launch around River Lea gives you access to the Niagara River and a quick way to reach Motor Island and Strawberry Island.
