  • No lifeguards on duty at any JBLM beaches.
  • No alcohol permitted on the beaches. The only exception is for unit events when an Exception to Policy is requested through Outdoor Recreation (initiated during the pavilion reservation process).
  • Please help keep our parks clean; Pack it in, pack it out. There are trash receptacles located throughout the park as well as large dumpsters near the entrance/exit of the park to dispose of any unwanted items.

Summer safety

  • Use caution when swimming in American Lake and other local bodies of water. Waters in the area maintain constant temperatures throughout the year, and there’s a risk of hypothermia.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Use sunscreen.
  • Check on friends and neighbors.
  • Please don’t leave children or pets in your vehicle, even for a second. Temps can reach lethal levels very quickly.

Stay cool indoors with MWR!

Bowl Arena Lanes, Warrior Zone (ages 18+), Habanero Mexican Grill and McChord Library are air-conditioned. Find addresses and hours throughout this website.
