John U. Lloyd Beach State Park
About John U. Lloyd Beach State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
John U. Lloyd Beach State Park has 2-1/2 miles of swimming beach. Every summer and fall, thousands of visitors flock to the water to find relief from the sweltering heat of nearby cities. Having said that; visitor safety remains our #1 concern. Below are some recommendations to make your day at the park both safe and enjoyable.
Bring sunscreen, and sun glasses for protection from harmful UV rays.
Bring plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
Never swim alone; always use the buddy system.
Check the weather and wave conditions before you arrive and be alert for changing conditions. (Afternoon thunder and lightning are a common occurrence during the summer months). Information and warning flags are clearly posted at the entrance station and in the parking lots. Please be sure to read and understand special warnings concerning rough surf, rip currents and dangerous marine life that may be present.
Avoid diving into the surf as underwater rocks and shallow areas are often not detected.
My staff and I remain committed to the safety of our visitors. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office or one of our Park Rangers. It is always our hope that you have a safe and enjoyable experience while visiting the park.
