    "Wonderful spot especially for little ones. We live in Essex and this is the first year that I have taken my 3 year old to this lake. I love that the swimming area is small and there is a great playground. The beach area consists of sand and grass and there are bathrooms on site. A little pricey at 7pp, but worth it."

    "This is a great familyfriendly beach. The beach is clean, as are the amenities. It's a very small beach area so it's easy to keep an eye on the kids. My complaints are that there is no limit on attendants so the small beach can get VERY crowded. It's also a little pricey 7 per person NOT per vehicle for nonresidents of Williston. Also, beware of the slide on the play structure. When the sun is out, it is EXTREMELY hot. We saw a young boy get some pretty bad burns on the backs of his legs."
