there were no beach goers for swimming in Oct. But plenty of people taking in the view of the water and enjoying the fresh air.

This beach is rocky not sandy, so it helps to wear flip-flops or waters shoes. They have grills and pavilions.

We stayed at Table Rock Lake State Park which doesn't have a designated swim beach. And there isn't much to do unless you boat. We found this beach on one our last days, wish we would have found it sooner. We had so much fun.

This public area is located on Table Rock Lake. Access is $4 per car load; a great deal. Good parking. There is a very nice sand beach, and the swim area is protected from the main lake so there are no wake issues from boats. The rest rooms are modern and clean. There is no food services so you must... More

Had no idea the beach would be closed. I don't know if it closes for the season or what. We really wanted to play in the sand. Very disappointed. The area was was beautiful. Normally only $4 a day to play in the sand.

This was a great place to take the family for a day at the beach. The water was a pleasant temperature. If you go, be sure to bring your own floating devices because it is the best way to spend the day. Also, bring a lunch, because they have covered picnic tables. Bring your own beach chairs too.

Breathtaking views. The absolute best time to visit is first thing in the morning (8 ish ) Reason being we took pictures with the fog over the trees and waterway, turned away for not more than 5-10 minutes and then had a whole new group of pictures to take as the fog just disappeared. Was beautiful.

A very nice beach for a lake. Don't expect white soft sand like in Destin. The rocky shores are best navigated with shoes on. I love the bay as the water is warm and usually calm. Great place to relax and have a picnic.

This beach shows to be permanently closed in Google Maps. Don't believe it, as it is open and nice, clean and worth visiting. However, it could be closed during long weekends as it can get so crowded that no additional cars would be allowed. This is a little rocky beach, so it would be worth to bring some water sandals...
