I went there to the beach and poop was littered everywhere in the sand which was off-putting. It seemed to have been cleared up when I went back but still smells like poop. The water was clear though. I wondered if the less than stellar experience was from that day only before any further cleaning had been given a chance. But I kind of doubt it.

It was probably an isolated incident, most likely cause by a single individual with some mental health issues. I just don't think that many people would poop on a beach if they had any choice.

They were likely duck/geese poop

It's not always like that there so don't write it off completely. In the summer time there are a lot of birds that hang out on there so not surprising there is sometimes geese poop lying around. Every time I have been there it has been relatively clean and they make an effort of cleaning up regularly. (not the birds, the people)

Oh, I see. Unfortunately that's just something that goes along with any nature area with a body of water. I get that the presence of fecal matter might put a damper on plans to frolic on the beach, but I'd prefer the presence of poop to the absence of the wildlife that creates the poop.

Apparently from fowl, specifically geese. It's a common problem wherever they congregate and doesn't by itself mean that Lake McBride is a filthy spot to be avoided.
I see geese droppings in the park where I often go to sit & read at lunch here in the middle of midtown Atlanta as well as near natural water features near my suburban neighborhood.
In the small Wisconsin town where my mom lived her last years, the river bank by her building was a popular spot for both ducks & geese. Everyone there knew to take care for stepping in the stuff in the yard.

I know they legalized goose hunting in specific parts of CR due to the high population, maybe that will help.
