Sandy Bottom Park is located at the north end of Honeoye Lake, off County Road 36 (West Lake Road). Walking trails can also be accessed on Main Street, and at the north end of East Lake Road. 



Swimming at Sandy Bottom Beach is now CLOSED for the 2017 season.


The anticipated 2018 schedule of operation for the beach is mid-June through mid-August, with daily hours of operation during the month of July. Check back for hours of operation in late spring 2018. Please observe all safety signs posted at the beach.
