“nice place for a stroll and fishing”

Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Portage
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

this is generally a nice place to take a stroll on the walkway looking out on lake Michigan. winter did some damage this year, but the trail itself is walkable, there is almost always someone fishing here. views are what you make of it and some it is next to the steel mills, if you look at the lake you can overlook the mills.

My wife & I have come here numerous times to watch the Sunset.You walk out on to the pier, you watch the boats come in & out. The parking is free, the beach is nice, and the people are always friendly.

It is a great place to walk out on the pier and watch sun set or walk the tail along river and watch people fishing or try fishing your self

This isn't the best spot on the Dunes Lake shore, but not bad at all. There is a parking lot some distance from the beach. The beach is not as good as the Dunes Park, or Kemil beach but is still a beach so it isn't bad.

Great small national lake shore park nestled amongst the homes and steel mills. Often go there to get a close up view of lake Michigan and chicago in the distance. Park entry is free.
