Excuse me, do you know what this beach is called?” — NMS
Son-of-a Beach. — Jacek (Ontonagon local)
Well, this beach is on the North side of Ontonagon. See the map. Just up the shore to the North is the Ontonagon Township Park and Campground. See their website. The beach here was right next to the river mouth. I think a lot of sediment comes out from the river, which they must dredge, which must be the reason for the concrete river walls extending well out into the lake. I didn’t show any pictures of it, but its on the map. Nice beach… sorta. It’s better up by the campground. Neat little park that I wasn’t aware of. The latter pictures here are from there. It’s only a few hundred yards up the beach, so I’d recommend going there instead of down by the river.
As for the name Son-of-a Beach … We just stumbled across this spot and found a local man pushing a baby in a stroller. I asked him if he knew the name of the beach so I could write in on my ball, and he answered sarcastically… Son-of-a Beach. Turns out his name was Jacek… Don’t remember the family name, but it was Polish like a good portion of the Ontonagon community. Enjoy the pics!
