Gillham Lake 

Swimming

 

Preston, Winnona and Bucky the Beaver promote water safety.

Although Gillham Lake is known mostly for it’s fishing there is one designated swimming area located at Big Coon Creek. Users must pay a daily fee or purchase an annual pass to use the beach.  And Bucky the Beaver reminds everyone to always wear a life jacket while out on the lakes!
