The beach is a bit small, and there's only one section where you can really spread out to soak up the sun. As others have mentioned, there's a lot of rocks, so it can be painful to walk down to the water. But there's a...More

They have bathrooms, a partial walkway which needs to be updated... other than that the beach itself was...More

Great view of the lake and sunsets. Some days have more visitors than others Guess that the overall weather determines that.

There is a pavilion nearby where you can cook. I do not know about cooking on the beach. I would think not on the beach.
