Station Beach is definitely a beach for little ones with its shallow water, gradual slope, sandy beach, and a smattering of pebbles lining the water's edge.
Sunning and swimming are the most popular activities for people of all ages. For the more physically active, there is co-ed beach volleyball every Friday at 7 p.m.
The boardwalk, bordering the beach, is a great place to stroll or jog and catch a bit of exercise. The boardwalk can be a learning experience, too. Soak up some local marine history as well as the sun through the interpretive signs with information about local shipwrecks.
From the north side of the Pier to Saugeen Street, the small stretch of beach is great for children. Tiny Tot Park, the Snack Bar, washrooms, a covered picnic area (at Dunsmoor Park), lots of shade trees, the Rock Gardens, the Pavilion and Lovers Lane add to the ambiance of this part of the beach. Parking is plentiful and, just like Station Beach, the sandy beach gently slopes into Lake Huron. Sand bars off the shore add a unique dimension to wading out into the lake.
The lighthouse and museum in the old keeper's quarters are open for tours all summer.
