Georgetown Park

Georgetown Township, Michigan

Georgetown Park has a great sandy beach that stretches over 270 feet wide and over 150 feet deep. Here you'll find ample parking and restroom facilities making it a great meeting spot for friends and families. On site you'll find a playground for the kids and a paved walking trail. The beach itself doesn't offer much shade so bring an umbrella or a beach tent if you're worried about the sun.

Recreational public beaches in Michigan are tested several times a week, typically from May to September. Officially, the water should be clean for swimming from May 1 to October 31. Michigan beaches are posted when the geometric mean of 3 samples collected at the same time exceeds 300 E. coli / 100 ml or when the geometric mean of 5 samples collected over 30 days exceeds 130 E. coli / 100 ml.

In the USA, the Environmental Protection Agency has two sets of recommendations for freshwater and marine beaches. A single sample at a freshwater beach should not exceed 235 E. coli / 100 ml of water. A single sample at a marine beach should not exceed 104 Enterococci / 100 ml of water. The geometric mean of 5 samples from a freshwater beach should not exceed 126 E. coli / 100 ml of water. The geometric mean of 5 samples from a marine beach should not exceed 35 Enterococci / 100 ml of water. States may choose to use this standard or they may substitute a standard that is "as protective as" the EPA's recommendation. The Beach Act is the nation's primary beach protection law.
