Description
Cool off during hot summer months at the Gladstone Beach on the south side of Van Cleve Park. Shallow water makes this a perfect stop for the kids. Public showers and restrooms for changing into your swimming gear are available at the Gladstone Beach House.

Recreation amenities at the park include a skate park, volleyball court, baseball diamond, and a basketball court. A fishing pier is located near the lighthouse where you can fish for trophy walleye, bass, and pan fish.

If you are looking for a unique sea/land experience, try the 3 Mile Bike & 3 Mile Paddle loop available through MISH that takes you from Van Cleve Park along the shore of Lake Michigan and back via bike & kayak. You can bring your own bike or borrow one when you get there.

Van Cleve Park also has a large pavilion and picnic shelter near a huge playscape with climbing areas and wooden towers for the kids. It is a perfect spot for reunions and large gatherings.

Stop in Gladstone on your next Upper Peninsula adventure and take a scenic walk across the bridge to relax in the gazebo and enjoy the picturesque views at Van Cleve Park.
