Sand from the quarries helped to create the state park system's largest natural sand swimming beach along Wakonda Lake. The 20,000-square-foot beach offers plenty of room to lounge in the sun or get in a game of sand volleyball. There is no lifeguard on duty, so swimming is at your own risk. There is a showerhouse and restroom facility located at the beach for your convenience.
