About Orion Township Camp Agawam Beach

Camp Agawam is home to a small sandy beach on Tommy’s Lake. There are a few picnic tables as well as benches on the beach. The area is surrounded by trees that provide a nice shaded area also. Beachgoers can also enjoy the picnic table area that is closer to the parking lot. Finally, restrooms and drinking fountains are located near the parking lot.

Entrance to Orion Township Beach

The beach is a nice little hidden gem that can accommodate a few families. During our visit, there were two other families at the beach, which was perfect for us. The girls had a great time while we were there. It’s an amazing free resource for the community.
