Lake side beach has a long history... my family has been going here for generations. The beach is large enough for a lot of fun activities. The water was in good condition and safe to go in when I was there.

Lovely beach perfect for a nice dip in the Lake or to put a canoe in and paddle. Bring a picnic or a football and have a fun afternoon enjoying the beautiful beach.
