From Great Lake’s beaches to crystal clear inland waters, visitors can find many spots to swim, paddle, sail boat or just hang out on the beach. The first week of July featured Great Lake’s beaches. Check out the posts on the DNR Facebook page and post photos of your favorite Great Lake’s beach. This coming week will look at some fantastic inland beaches at state properties.

In coming weeks watch for opportunities for getting on the water and some best spots for sunrise and sunset viewing.
