Beaches and Parks
The LPA has three Beach/ Park areas for the use of LPA members and their guests.
Boulder Beach is located on the east side of the lake, just west of the Lake Panorama National Resort. It has a large swimming area, three docks for boat parking, two picnic shelters that can be reserved, flush toilets and water available, sand volleyball, and playground facilities for small children.
Shady Beach is located on the west side of the lake, east of the Panorama West Golf Course. The beach has mature timber around the picnic shelter, boat parking at two docks, flush toilets, water, and picnic tables.
Sunset Beach is the smallest beach swimming area, but has a large open area for field games. It also has a volleyball net, two docks for boat parking, flush toilets and drinking water. A shelter that will seat fifty people is also available.
The LPA tests water weekly for bacterial contamination during the swimming season using the same procedures as the Iowa State Park Beaches. Results are available by ebulletin, in the announcements, and in the "Beach Report" section on the public side of our website.
