Roped off areas include 2 ft, 4 ft, 6 ft, 6-13 ft with diving dock, and a deep water lap lane. Swimming is only allowed when there is a lifeguard on duty and the diving dock and lap lane areas will only be open if there are two or more guards on duty. If there are no guards on duty, the facility will still be open for all other activities. There is a day-use fee to enter the facility.

Fishing

Love to fish? Pine Hill Lake has a variety of fish to catch. Trout, bass, sunnies, and perch are just a few of the fish we regularly see on the ends of fishing poles. There is no fee to fish in the lake but remember you are subject to New York State’s fishing rules and regulations. Fishing licenses are not sold at Belleayre Beach, but there are a couple of local sports shops in the area that do.

There are also a bunch of free activities at the Belleayre Beach you can participate in too. Below is just a sampling of what else we have to offer.   Unfortunately, we will not have extra toys, supplies, or equipment to be handing out to this summer and make sure to bring your own.

  • Wiffle Ball
  • Picnicking with tables and BBQ grills – There are limited picnic tables and BBQ grills available
