The 4.8 acre beach front property is located on Long Lake. It is Orono’s largest swimming beach. The property was donated by Bruce and Ruth Dayton.


The park includes picnic tables, chemical toilet, and parking. Old growth trees cover the hilltop picnic area to the canoe launch, and wetland vegetation is found in the northern section of the park.

A canoe storage rack is located on the property. These can be rented by applying online with the Canoe Rack Rental Form

Hennepin County Public Health samples and analyzes the water at public swimming beaches to make sure it is safe for swimming. For the latest information on water quality visit their website.
