Gillson Park reviews
Lots of things have changed due to Covid. You can only swim at the swimming beach which is season passes only this year (for residents and non-residents). No day passes like other years. Same goes... more »
Very nice beach and facilities. I really liked the snack shack with a great menu. Our kids had plenty to do between playing at the beach and at the small park. Sand is great and lots of life guards watching over all the kids in the large waves. Here is a pic of the prices.
Always brings back memories of my parents bringing me here as a child - when there were bluffs on the north end and barbequeing, swimming, getting sun burnt, enjoying whole days on Lake Michigan. Truly heavenly. Now more modern, but a little colder look - not sure I like improvements. Kind of a naturalist at heart.
