Located on Lake Michigan along Highway 57 on the south end of town, Anclam Park is a wonderful place to bring the whole family or spend some contemplative time alone.
A picnic area with barbeque grills and picnic tables is nestled along the sand beach. Take a dip in the lake, have lunch, then walk it off with a stroll down the jetty for wonderful lake views. The jetty was once an 800-foot pier owned by John Anclam and used by the Hart and Hill Steamship Companies to load and unload supplies and ship timber in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This is where the fireworks are lit off for the 4th of July celebration.
There is a small playground for the kids and you can keep an eye on them or watch the occasional wind surfer or kite boarder skimming across the harbor while resting on one of the many park benches provided.
For your convenience, there is plenty of parking, an informational kiosk, and a clean, accessible public rest room.
Situated down town next to Town Hall, the Visitor Center, and McArdle Library, this park offers a place to rest after shopping, a place to eat that lunch to go or a place to picnic. A pavilion and picnic tables are provided and there is WiFi access thanks to the public library.
The kids will absolutely love the vast array of playground equipment. Slides, swings, teeter totter, merry-go round, and the oh so popular springy thingies to name a few will keep your children squealing with delight.
Mid-Town Lake View
There is not a better place to enjoy an delicious treat. Tucked just 100 yards East of Bluff Road on Lake Michigan, this little hide away is only accessible by foot and will only facilitate a very small number of people at a time.
A wonderful view, the sound of waves on the shore, peace, and tranquility, Mid-Town Lake View is a great discovery to share with a few of your closest friends.
Just off Highway 57 on Ridges Road, you can drive up the graveled road to the lake, park, and get a good glimpse of the harbor. Park benches are provided.
Once a playground for the Baileys Harbor Elementary School, you will find this green space on Guy Street by taking Howard Street one block West off of Highway 57. Only a lonely park bench will impede your creativity in this free form park. Throw down a blanket to take a nap or picnic or both, read a book, throw a frisbee, or play catch. Badminton or croquet anyone?
