Swimming at Laurel River Lake

Swim Safely at

Laurel River Lake

Swimming on Laurel River Lake is one of the more popular water-based activities.  Swimming is prohibited at launching ramps, mooring points, marinas, public docks, and posted areas. It is allowed elsewhere, but for safety's sake please swim only in specifically designated areas.  The Spillway Beach is much safer as it is off-limits to boats of all kinds.  “Restricted area” buoys and a floating yellow pipeline surround the beach.
