Tips for birding Pleasant Hill Lake Swimming Beach
The swimming beach is located along the north shore of the lake. Drive in the Pleasant Hill Lake S.P. entrance and continue straight to the lake. There is a parking lot on a hill above the beach. Another option is to drive around the west side of the building at the end of the entrance road, continuing past boat docks until you are at the beach. The swimming beach is good early in the spring until mid-May and Late August until the lake freezes.
