here is the coordinates of my aunts cottage so if I got her permission we would park in the north beach parking lot and then from there park our skis on her beach. just under a mile and a half ride from the pier.

43.084108, -86.255241 _______ just google maps it.

I tried launching from the furthest south beach beach at grand haven (Past State Park) I didnt even get the skis off the truck and a cop told me it was not allowed. we did push two skis through the croud on the beach but that was a stroke of luck!! we had a much better experience in muskegon it is a little bit of a drive but way less hassel of getting out on the water, the channel is alot shorter as well my family lives in Spring Lake so we parked skis there over night. a cop stopped us when we were loading up in muskegon at the end of the day come to find out he had an sxr and wanted to ride later in the week lol he said it was okay to ride the beach just stay away from swimmers im sure if you contacted the local PD and asked them what the rules are on the beach they would be more than happy to fill you in
