We went to the beach for the first time since moving here. Let me say, it will be the last time too. It was not clean at all. There were empty cups and trash all over. We walked down to the water and there was an old tire laying on the waters edge. NOT a place I would want to... More

It was very clean and well maintained. Good for the whole family. It had a boardwalk too where you could walk to a nice hotel if you were staying there.

My family enjoyed a late night swim and walk on the pier at this very nice beach! The area was very clean and enjoyable

Free parking. Wasn't crowded when we went, and the water was the perfect temperature, though we just waded a little in our shorts rather than swam. Very small beach area, and the swimming only goes out a little way before it is roped off. I can't imagine it would be a great place to go on weekends when it's crowded.... More

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.
