Joe Wheeler State Park

Sandy Beach

JOE WHEELER STATE PARK DAY USE AREA IS OPEN!

You don’t have to go all the way to the coast to enjoy sandy beaches, summer-time sun, and cooling water. We have it here at Joe Wheeler State Park. The Beach Area is great for the kids and families! Soak up some sun rays, play in the sand, jump in the river to cool off, or have a picnic. The opportunities are endless at Joe Wheeler's Sandy Beach!

- No Alcoholic Beverages
- No Pets at Beach Area
- Swim at your own risk
- No Lifeguard on Duty

Important Information to Note:

  • There is only ONE restroom building.
  • There is limited shade available. Although tents are not permitted ON the beach, users are encouraged to bring and utilize easy-up type tents in other areas.
  • Pavilion #1 and #3 are available to rent by contacting the lodge reservation desk or park office at 256-247-5461. There will NOT be electricity at these pavilions this season.

We look forward to seeing you at Joe Wheeler State Park!
