Here are a few of our favorites:
Camp Richardson Resort & Marina
Camp Richardson is the best beach for families with kids. You will find easy access to food (a beachfront store and the Beacon Restaurant are on site), a bathroom with a shower, as well as access to paddle boat, kayak and jet ski rentals. There is live music on the BarBQ deck on summer evenings, and a dock on the far side of the beach where kids can jump off if the lake level is high enough. Even better, the location is right down the beach from the Tallac Historical site, so you can explore summer homes from another era if you are finished doing everything else.
