Beach Activities

At the south end of the park is a shuffleboard court ($2.00 a person) and four volleyball nets ($2.00 ball rental, if you need one), a great skate park, also a playground and the ever popular breakwall and lighthouse. Ask us about our SUP and Kayak Rentals.

Cone lickin' shifts into high gear with the arrival and departure of the S.S. Badger Carferry and the much anticipated, beautiful, ever changing sunsets. So let us scoop you a cone of your favorite ice cream, then take a seat at one of the picnic tables, many benches througout the beach or even take a stroll on the breakwall.
