St. Joseph Peninsula State Park reviews
There are few places left that are wilderness beach, but this is what you have on the upper part of this state park. It is a stunningly beautiful beach. The shelling is good. Campsites are nestled down in the dunes among rich flora and feisty fauna. There are toilets and showers nearby. I've spent some of the best weeks of my life here, and that includes time in London, Cornwall, Paris, Florence, Grand Canyon/Bryce Canyon areas, California, and Acadia National Park in Maine. It's just one of the most beautiful places in the world. Go!
