Oak Street Beach
You are in South Haven Michigan and you are looking to spend a day at the beach. As it is your vacation, you want to find a nice quiet spot where you won’t get hit in the head with a volleyball or risk an eye full of sand when an overly enthusiastic toddler races past you on the way to the shore. Fortunately, Oak Street Beach is a place where you can enjoy beautiful Lake Michigan in peace and quiet.
Plan Your Visit
Oak Street Beach is located just north of North Beach on (of course) Oak Street. If you are coming from I-196, get off at exit 22 and turn onto North Shore Drive. Then, just cross Blue Star Highway and follow the road to the parking lot. Parking for the day is $10. The beach is open every day from sunrise to 10:00 pm.
The beach offers a 30-foot-wide sandy area nestled between two fenced-in private properties. There are bathrooms at the beach and there are picnic tables with grills at a Packard Park which is right next door. It is a great place to take a picnic and watch the sunrise or sunset. The waters of Lake Michigan are the perfect temperature for swimming and the winds make it a great place to go kiteboarding.
