Poplar Camp Beach Opens

Friday, May 24, 2019

We invite you to catch some rays, relax, and cool off at Poplar Camp Beach. The beach is a well-groomed sandy entry to the cool, clean waters of Cedar Lake. Clean restrooms, picnic tables, a concession stand with cold drinks, ice cream, and a variety of snacks are available to make your visit even more convenient and pleasurable. To reach Poplar Camp Beach from Carbondale, travel south on U.S. Highway 51 to the second traffic light south of Pleasant Hill Road. Turn right on old Hwy. 51 and drive ½ mile to Cedar Creek Road. Turn right onto Cedar Creek Road and follow to Poplar Camp Road on the left (approximately 1.2 miles), across from Union Hill Road on the right. Turn left on Poplar Camp Road which ends at the beach parking lot. The City of Carbondale owns and operates Poplar Camp Beach along with the City’s boat launch and access area. The boat launch is located at the west end of Cedar Creek Road. For more information call 549-8441.
