WE ARE LOCATED:
Lake Le Homme Dieu Beach is located in Alexandria Township of Douglas
County, Minnesota. From Alexandria, go north on State Trunk Highway 29
just past the city limits to the beach entrance. The beach is also accessible
by a paved off road bicycle path that connects the city neighborhoods
south of the lake
WHAT IS THE
The beach is located on a right of way for Trunk Highway
29. Initially constructed as a wayside rest, the property quickly became
popular as a swimming spot. In 1992 Douglas County entered into a 20 year
lease agreement with the Minnesota Department of Transportation to improve
and operate the facility as a public swimming beach. With assistance from
the Alexandria Golden K Kiwanis Club, the property was rebuilt with new
restrooms, parking lots, and beach area.
Lakes Area Recreation provides lifeguard services
from noon to 7:00 p.m. during the summer swim season whenever daytime
temperatures are above 68 degrees.
Please see the Park Facilities Grid page for a list of facilities available at the County Parks.
