Watch Your Children!

Wear Your Lifejacket!



Many parks offer designated swimming areas that are perfect spots to cool off on a sunny summer day. These parks include Buck Creek, Highway 125, Lakeview, Lead Hill, Oakland and Theodosia. Day use fees are charged in designated swimming areas. Users may pay a daily fee of $1 per person up to $4 per car or purchase an annual pass for $30.
