The clear, cool waters of Jamesville Reservoir and sparkling Butternut Creek offer the ideal place to cool off on a hot summer day.
The beach features 100 yards of lifeguarded waterfront up to 4' shallow water area, a 7'-10' deep water zone and a 3000 square foot inflatable raft zone. The deep water area includes a floating raft which provides experienced swimmers a cool place to hang out, sunbathe or demonstrate their cannonball technique. The all new playground, built in 2021, offers a great place for kids to be kids!
Planning a Party?
Acres of groomed lawn and shaded grounds offer prime locations for cookouts. Large parties can be hosted under the Sandpiper and Overlook Shelters or at the Point Tent Area. To reserve one of the shelters or tented areas, call (315) 451-6249.
