Who would ever thought to find a sandy beach in the middle of North Texas! The beach is a man-made beach park by a lake with imported sand and fashioned with a few beach huts. There is a suspended platform that you can walk across. Bathrooms are nearby with an outside shower heads. We didn't go into the water, we... More

I didn't really want to put the word "poop" in this review, but I think people need to be aware of the problem because it could be a health issue. This beach was in the news while we were there because it had just reopened after enough rain to bring the lake level up. From a distance it looked OK--the... More

We had a wonderful time during our two day stay in Granbury over the 4th of July, except for the city beach. We went knowing the water level to be low due to the drought, but also under the impression that the beach itself would be very clean based on reviews. Well, the cleanliness of the beach at the waterline... More

It's sad to see the lake water level down so far because of the drought This little beach has it all . . . Great sand, picnic tables under little straw huts, place for a snack bar and a tiny water park for the little ones. The area needs some tremendous rains to bring the water level back up. In... More

Kid friendly, one of the best lake beaches I've been to. Too bad the water is so low, there isn't much water to enjoy... lots of sand to play in though.

I enjoyed just sitting and being quiet in the mornings with my coffee. There are public restrooms, a boardwalk from the Hilton to the other side of the beach accessing waterfront condos and a short walk downtown to the square.

Even though the lake level has suffered because of drought the last two years, this is still a clean beach to relax or bring the kids. You can walk to 'the square' and there are many stores and restaurants available. Also has free parking available and a small snack-bar.

It's sad to see the cumulative affect of the drought Texas has suffered the last couple of years. Lake Granbury is slowly disappearing. Unusually hot temperatures of 105 made the beach experience unbearable and we quickly retreated back to our room at the Hilton. The lake is down almost 6 feet and quickly drying up. Many boathouses around the perimeter... More

Water is currently low and some areas had rocks which were hard on the feet. But the kids enjoyed playing in the water. Overall very clean. Kids also enjoyed the splash pad

This is a fun little beach where children and adults can play. With the water down in the lake, it is a littler small. People were having a lot of fun over the 4th, even with low water.
