Owned cottage in Holland cottage association until 1978 I want cottage back.
May 30 Crowded by Mike
One of the most popular state parks in Michigan- waits to get in during the summer can be long plus you may not even be able to get in- the park fills up fast so you have to get there early. Traffic down Ottawa Beach Rd can get bad. If the park is full, there are County Beaches at the end of most of the East-West roads north of the park.
