Nice, protected swimming area with 2 floating platforms. Lake is clean and it’s easy to keep an eye on swimmers. Only downside is it’s $10 to use beach because the lake is private.

Lake Laura is a man made lake. It has a grass beach and there is a small fee to swim. Docks are in the lake to swim to. No pets here.

We enjoyed spending a day at the lake and have some fun. The kids rented a canoe for an hour to cross the lake. Entrance is a bit high per person, but still worth spending a day if you bring your own food and drinks.
