Robin Lake Beach

Soak up the sun on the shores of sparkling Robin Lake Beach, America's largest inland white sand beach! Summering comes naturally on the floating obstacle course Aqua Island, where you can race across twisting bridges, bounce on giant trampolines, and scale inflatable mountains before plunging into the refreshing waters below. Back on dry land, play all day with beach activities for all ages, including mini golf and volleyball, and relax in a luxurious cabana with plenty of space for the whole family to unwind. Don't wait to enjoy your stress-free day at the beach. Book your visit to Robin Lake Beach next summer!

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!
