My kids and I spent an afternoon at Goldston's Beach and loved it. The beach is rather small but the water was great, there was a lot of room in the water, and it was a ton of fun. After swimming we rode a couple rides which was the perfect ending to the night.

Goldston's Beach is the only public access to this lake, unless you are launching a boat. If you want to see the lake and really enjoy it's beauty, it would be best to rent a house on the lake and stay for the night. My family and I went to see the lake because we had heard how clear the... More

I'm not sure why this place has received such positive reviews. I visited last week and was not impressed with the facilities. When you enter Goldston's Beach, you pay $5 per person, then park your car. There's a motel, a restaurant that has not been renovated since the 1970s, a gift shop, and arcade. You can proceed to the pier... More

There is not much to do at White Lake so this place gives you something to do. They have bingo which is what I enjoy. Carnival rides and a game room (which is a BIG money trap if you have kids). I wish they would do the wrist band thing like they advertise on their website but they do not.... More

Great relaxing place and very easy set up... Conveniently located and not too far of a drive to make in a one day trip. Great atmosphere and safe for children. Awesome facilities such as restaurant, changing rooms, arcade and above all a great souvenir shop.

We've been coming to White Lake on and off for the past 15 years and have stayed at Goldston's Beach for the majority of those years. The location to the "beach", food and rides for the kids and kids at heart are unbeatable. There is even a local grocery store for things you may have forgotten. If you want to... More
