Robin Lake Beach History

Over sixty years ago, Robin Lake Beach was built specifically for the Masters Water Ski Tournament.  The architects made sure to build an expansive pavilion with covered stadium seating, a judges’ tower, and a media area all for this international event. The action can be seen clearly from the white sand beach and picnic areas. At one mile, Robin Lake is also the largest man-made beach in America!
