“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

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.

“Small lake beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

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. Nice sandy area of beach, but not large, some shaded cabanas, and a splash park for the kids nearby, as well as restrooms and an outdoor shower. I enjoyed my short visit and wouldn't mine going back with a picnic lunch for an afternoon with the kids on an off-day.

“Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 just walked on the soft sand, and enjoyed the scenery. :-)

“Animal Poop Ruins This Beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 sand had been raked; kids were playing; tiki huts and tables weren't in too much disrepair. But at the waterline, it was awful. The first thing we noticed was trash in the water at the far edges of the beach--tires, bottles, cans, lumber, and foamy gunk on the surface. Then as we started walking along the edge of the water, we saw pile after pile of animal poop. I don't know if it's people walking their dogs or what, but it doesn't look like it's coming from ducks or other birds. The water was lapping over these piles and washing back out--all while kids were playing in it. How clean is this water for swimming? This beach has great potential as a fun and healthy place to be. Whoever is in charge of it needs to clean it up!
