Joe Wheeler State Park Beach Area

You don’t have to go all the way to the coast to enjoy the sand, sun, and water. We have it here at Joe Wheeler State Park.  The Beach Area is great for the kids and family.  Soak up some sun rays, play in the sand, jump in the river to cool off, or have a picnic.  Also, the Beach House has restroom facilities and an outside sand shower.  Paying your fee to enter the picnic area will include access to the beach.  

No Alcoholic Beverages
No Pets at Beach Area
