Lake Josephine County Park has family friendly amenities that include a playground, a guarded beach, picnic areas, a boat launch, and fishing areas. The playground equipment is large, but standard. The playground floor is mulch. The picnic areas are not sheltered, but they are shaded.
Lake Josephine Beach
Lifeguards are on-duty at beaches daily from noon - 8 p.m. beginning June 8, 2019 through August 18 2019, but are subject to weather and attendance. However, the beach is open to swimmers from May 25th through Labor Day without lifeguard services.
The sandy area of this beach is rather small. However, there are some shady spaces where blankets where families could camp out close to the sand. There are also strategic spots where a parent could watch both the beach and the playground.
Pets at Lake Josephine Park
Leashed pets are allowed at this park. However, they are not allowed on the beach or in the picnic areas and cannot be left unattended. It would be best to leave them home if you plan to spend the day at the beach and/or picnicking.
