Swimming at Long Lake?

Can anyone tell me what the swimming is like at Long Lake?

We are accustomed to swimming in Mirror Lake. Not much weed. Fairly decent temperatures in upper 70s in the summer months and safe with no motor boats.

Is Long Lake access from Motel Long Lake Motel and other such cabins... sandy bottom? Similar temperature? Safe to swim or are there many many boats?

There is a sandy beach right before the bridge in the village.

There's also a sandy beach at Sandy Point Motel...and Shamrock Motel. That lower end of the lake (south of Rt. 30 and the town beach) doesn't look like it gets a lot of boat traffic.

Prefer the town beach near the bridge as the water's deeper. Lower part of the lake tends to be shallow, with lots of mud and undergrowth.

You can also find small pools at Buttermilk Falls.

The town beach has the added benefit of a view of the Sewards!
