“Wedding Event”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We felt the price to get into the beach was expensive ($8.00 a person). The beach was clean and kept up well from what we could see. Not much to offer older children though. It was satisfactory to our needs at the time.

“The kids had fun...”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

I guess this is a city owned park? We arrived early in the day with 3 kids, the water slides are not working so we got a dollar off, most of the water features are broken down with only 2 of 5 buckets dumping water, the bathrooms are preserved just as they were in 1927, no upkeep or updating going on here, I've been to abandoned gas stations with better bathrooms, the beach had been dragged just before we got there and was covered in cigarette butts and duck poop, which smelled really bad the closer you got to the edge of the green lake. The lifeguard situation was very strong with at least 2 at all times watching the swim area, most of the staff looked like high school kids that took turns relieving each other for lifeguard duty and eating in the ticket booth, come on guys, pick up a few of those cigarette butts, and clean those old run down bathrooms.

“Great day for the family!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

This is our favorite way to spend the day at Lake lure. The beach is surrounded in a beautiful setting of mountains, trees and a gorgeous lake! The lifeguards are excellent and professional. During our visit there was a water moccasin snake and they got everyone out of the water and killed it in minutes! The water slides are a lot of fun and the sprinkler park is great. Clean, affordable and a great way to make memories with the family!!

“Pleased with Lake Lure”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Everything was great! The scenery is outstanding. The surrounding mountains are magnificent.The boat tour was wonderful. The beach was clean and very inviting. I can't imagine there is anything you would dislike about this area. One thing that might be a suggestion is that there could be more restaurants and possibly more activities to do.
