Beach View

The beach is one of the best places to be on a warm sunny day when the waves from boats passing by are breaking onto the shore. Children are laughing and playing in the water or in the sand, feeling it squish through their toes. But, whether you are playing in the water or just relaxing lazily on the sandy beach or on a raft, the beach is the place for you.

Beach view from the water


Candlewood's beach has a large sandy area with more sand added regularly to maintain a soft sand reservoir and to protect the shore. There is also a designated, roped-off area of the lake for beach swimming.

A boat dock, located next to the beach, allows boaters to drop off and pick up passengers who want to take a break from boating and swim in the lake.

Kids Playing

Adjacent to the beach are the playground, volleyball court and a picnic shelter that overlooks the lake. There are also picnic tables on a grassy area between the beach and the playground and of course, plenty of parking.

Whether you spend an afternoon or the entire day at the beach, it is an ideal spot for adults and children alike.
