USA Today: Clear Lake has top beaches

CLEAR LAKE, IA: Clear Lake is home to two top beaches according to USA Today. Clear Lake’s City Beach and Clear Lake State Park Beach were both mentioned in the publication’s Memorial Day weekend Travel feature, “51 Great American Beaches.”

“It is very rewarding for Clear Lake to be recognized at the National level for our fabulous beaches,” said Libbey Patton, Director of Tourism. “A lot of effort has been made to maintain quality, family-friendly beaches.”

Last summer, the Association for the Preservation of Clear Lake purchased a beach cleaner that screens out trash, rocks, weeds, and animal droppings. The Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce donated $5,000 toward the purchase of the cleaner, and the rest of the money was raised by the APCL through additional donations.

The playground equipment, picnic facilities, bike-path access, and special features like the downtown splash pad are other highlights to the Clear Lake beach experience.

Clear Lake’s event schedule, including popular upcoming summer events like Thursdays on Main and the biggest and best July 4th Celebration, is available online at, or you can download the free Clear Lake mobile app for Android and iPhone.
