This release comes the state:

***Lake James State Park Swim Beach Closed

This Weekend, 6/18-19***

Due to high levels of E.Coli found in the lake near the swim beach, the swim beach will be closed this weekend. It is likely due to geese overnighting in the swim beach area, or runoff of animal waste into the Catawba River from recent heavy rains.

We apologize for the short notice- the testing information came to us late Friday 6/17. Thanks for your patience!
