Rez Beach

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District is building a beach at Lakeshore Park.

A portion of the shoreline around the piers at Lakeshore Park is being smoothed down in preparation for sand.  The PRV plans to put a layer of sand on the shoreline area creating a beach, sand will extend into the water about 5 feet.

Buoys will be encircle the area and restrict it to swimming only.


The sand is expected to be delivered any day, once it is put in place and the swimming area marked off it should be open for fun.

Cool. Hope it works. The sand in the water will soon be covered with gray silt like all the sand bars up river, but at least there is a beach on this end of the reservoir and you don't have to travel 20 miles up river to find one! :)

I think this is nice. They should do something similar at Pelahatchie park. I'd sure like to see something done about all the garbage on the natural sandbars up river. After all, the "garbage water" up river eventually washes into the Rez, and is what people will be swimming in at this nice new beach. Since PRVWSD basically gave up on the garbage problem, and removed all the garbage cans, some of the sandbars look like landfills. Except of course after the river gets high for a few days, and then all the trash magically disappears. Go figure. If you want a story, go take some pictures of the sandbar just above Coal Bluff on a Sunday morning. You can walk there from the campground boat launch.

Can all you folks who don't live on PRVWSD leasehold land give us poor fools that do a big ole "Thank You" for building you yet another attraction that you get to use "Scott Free". And, we even pay for the pick up of the litter you drop, stop you from behaving like idiots (Rez Patrol), and we even for grass to be cut. Ain't we nice???

No. Aren't we nice for allowing you to use our roads to leave your precious lease land you had full knowledge of when you purchased?

Great idea the beach at Lakeshore Park. A zone for swimmers? What about the numerous Alligators?

I was really excited about this until I remembered the goose infestation. That beach is gonna be a giant goose litter box.

Can't have a beach at Roses Bluff because...that is exactly where one needs to be, however, it too would be covered with goose filth and dark gray silt.
