I think Burger lake in Fort Worth is the only one that you can swim in. None that I know of in Dallas. Burger's Lake - Sandy Beaches in Ft. Worth, Texas

After a quick Google search, it appears Lake Texoma in Sherman, Texas has some of the best sandy lake beaches in the whole state.

I believe Lake Joe Pool has a manmade beach.

I don't know if it's the best but Joe Pool lake at Lynn Creek State Park has a beach, on Memorial day it was very busy. There is also a restaurant/bar called Oasis that is walking distance. So you can get some drinks or a bite to eat if you like. Go there and enjoy the landscape and the sun. It sure didn't feel like Texas when I was there, I love my new neighborhood.

Burgers Lake is a small privately owned swimming hole/lake that is naturally spring fed. Pretty much all of the area lakes have a "swimming beach". Not the greatest but they do have them. Except for White Rock Lake and Northlake. You do NOT want to swim in those two lakes AT ALL! Joe Pool, Lewisville, Lake Ray Hubbard, Texoma, etc all have a public "beach" area for swimming.

How do you access the beach area for Lake Ray Hubbard... Seems I've been missing out on it all these years.

There are several. Over off of I-30 & Dalrock there is Robinson Park. On the other side of I-30 there is another small beach area. Then off of Chaha and I-30 back behind the apartments/condos are more beach areas. There are a couple of others as well scattered around the lake.

im highly confused, i wasnt aware that dallas was near the ocean. i didnt know you call pouring dump trucks of sand on top of grass and digging a deep hole and filling with water makes it a beach.

I had checked out the Robinson Park area but it's just disgusting. The marina is too close to it and the water & air smell like gasoline from the boats.

The one of Chaha in Garland is reaaally bad. Lots of drunks hang out there and the place if full of empty cans/bottles of beer.

I think I'll stick to my pool for now until the next trip.
