Not sure if there's a swim beach. But that's Mountain water, it will be very cold. You could probably stand in up your ankles for about five minutes and then you'll have to get back out because you'll be freezing. Most of the mountain lakes are not really swimming places. The water is way too cold in hypothermia will set in quickly.
