Lake Laura


Cool Off in our Very Own Beach And Boating Area

Trying to cool off during those hot summer months?  Check out the Lake Laura Beach & Boating Center.  For a small fee, you can spend the entire summer day lounging on the grassy beach while the kids swim and play in tranquil Lake Laura.

For rent are canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and paddleboards, just waiting for a great day spent on and in the water.

Beach Area

Bryce Resort operates a private fenced in beach area at Lake Laura which is open to the public for a fee. There is a sandy beach play area for the little ones; more accomplished swimmers love racing out to the floating docks; and mom and dad will enjoy relaxing in the sun or under the shade of the trees. While there is always a lake attendant, there is NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.

No one admitted under 16 without a parent or guardian.

Please be aware that the walk to the beach area includes a large uphill section.  Also, the beach area is a smoke-free zone.

Snacks, soft drinks, and life jackets are available.  Pets, alcoholic beverages and grills are not permitted.
