It’s a tucked away, secluded place that you must first know about in order to find. Locals say a small beach on the northern tip of Seneca Lake in Geneva goes by many names. For as long as anyone can remember, it’s been a popular place to relax and take in nature in a remote setting. However, you can’t go swimming here any longer, because the beach is now off limits.
“It’s been a free and open facility for us for as long as I can remember. I’m not too happy about it, but I’ll have to find somewhere else to swim,” says beachgoer Jason Munson.
No trespassing signs were recently put in by the State Department of Transportation. It owns this property, since it sits right under an elevated highway. There are railroad tracks nearby, too. Norfolk Southern Railroad has also put in no trespassing signs on one side of the beach. Some people coming here tell me these signs won’t stop them from hanging out at this previously undetected spot, but are still wondering what caused them to suddenly go in.
