Life's a Beach ... Go for a Swim

Updated: Nov 11



I think we can all agree Michigan summers are meant to be spent on the water. Whether you like boating, swimming, laying by the beach, or hanging near the splash pad, these spots to the list of favorite beaches and water parks from our moms of multiples.


If any of these spots have closed, or if you have a fun recommendation to add to the list, email our webmaster.


Beaches

Stony Creek Metropark | Shelby Township

Stony Creek Lake is a 500-acre lake that is a prime fishing spot, with a state record crappie caught here. Our members specifically recommend Baypoint and Eastwood Beaches, but be warned, there are no lifeguards, so swim at your own risk.


Independence Oaks Main Park-Oakland County Park | Clarkston Independence Oaks-North, featuring a 312-foot boardwalk connecting to a 180-foot-long fishing dock, is located one mile north of Independence Oaks County Park. Park visitors can launch canoes, kayaks or other registered portable non-motorized boats. (Heads up, all watercraft must be hand carried along a 1,200-foot-long gravel trail from the parking lot to the lake.) One member says "There is a nice beach on a small lake/pond with a newer play structure close by."


Dodge #4 State Park | Waterford

A sandy beach and a one-mile shoreline on Cass Lake makes Dodge #4 State Park an excellent location for summer and winter water activities.


Thelma G. Spencer Park | Rochester Hills

This 38-acre lake with lifeguarded beach (open Memorial Day to Labor Day) has a little something for everyone. If you aren't into swimming or fishing, there are also tennis courts and sand volleyball, as well as fun play structures for the kids.
