I went with my little nieces and nephews and found it to be very busy, very dirty, and had to wait quite a while in line before being allowed in at the gate. While on the beach I watched the lifeguards continually pestering people the...More

Clean water, however lake is low, but plenty of water for swimming and boating. Some dead fish and dog droppings on the beach, but since water is low you can find a nice beach.

First time here!! Overwhelmed with how warm the waters and friendly lifeguards on duty. Great place for family reunions, or just a day with grandbabies. Already have plans for another weekend! Happy summer life.

Not on shore. It was banned from the lake in 2003. Exceptions are made for special events and for boats not touching shore.
