The dog beach is so much better than expected

The campsites themselves are sadly devoid of much shade, and only a few even have a water view.  But the dog beach, a bit of a walk down the trail towards the lighthouse, surely exceeded our expectations.  Most places designate barely usable waterfront areas to dog beach. At first glance, the dog beach doesn't appear to be inviting, as the beach itself is narrow and rooty. But once you start to go in the water, it becomes clear that this beach is quite simply lovely, even for human use.  The shallows go out quite far, and is pleasantly sandy.  The water is warmer than on the Huron side of the point, too.  While campground itself is a bit blah, the dog beach gives it an extra star for me.  My only suggestion would be to add dispensers for poop bags, like other state parks have, in case of an unfortunate moment of being unprepared, and more trash barrels. (turned out we were near the end of our roll of bags, so our trip was cut short.

  • Our dogs don't even normally like to swim, but loved the dog beach, with it's warm shallow calm waters.
