Park Description from the State website

Holland State Park offers an expansive, sandy beach along Lake Michigan, two large campgrounds and a beautiful view of sailboats and sunsets. The park is divided into two separate units; one along Lake Michigan and the other along Lake Macatawa. The park was acquired from the City of Holland in December 1926. Since then it has been intensively used for its great beach and excellent campgrounds.

A boat launch is available one mile east of the park and provides access to Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan through the channel. These waters offer the angler a wide variety of fishing opportunities. No boat? No problem. The pier along the north side of the channel provides an excellent place for shore fishing. Charter boat services are available in the area to take people out on Lake Michigan. Ice fishing is a popular activity during the winter months.

The Holland area is well known for its Tulip Time Festival held every year in the spring. Here, visitors can see and walk among the widest variety of and greatest number of tulips grown anywhere in America.

Very nice camping on the Pine side with lots of trees. The Woodstock side is more like a desert. Good restrooms and showers. The beach is about a half mile away and is fantastic.

Personal Rating

From Alan: Drive all the way across the state to go camping? I don't know.
