LEE CO., GA (WALB) - Lee County leaders said the re-opening of Sandy Beach was a success so far.
The beach was opened on a 90-day trial basis, and so far they haven't had any reports of issues.
Several years back, Sandy Beach was a vacant lot used by the community.
But it was closed after several residents reported it was a nuisance, and it was used it as a hang out spot.
As kayakers and canoers continue to flock to the Kinchafoonee Creek, they've re-opened to give folks a half way point from Highway 32 to Highway 19.
"Some of the people that do I've talked to them already and they say it's a good halfway point like I said before," explained Code Enforcement Officer Ben Roberts. "Right now, it will cut the trip almost in half so instead of a full day on the water, you can do it in about a four hour or five hour afternoon."
Lee County leaders also remind kayakers and canoers to throw trash away while on the Kinchafoonee.
