Lake Samsonvale Opening

From Wednesday 21 November 2018, paddle craft will be permitted on Lake Samsonvale, in designated zones.

A public paddle craft launch point has been constructed at Forgan Cove (off Forgan Road). Paddle craft, such as canoes and kayaks, are now permitted on Lake Samsonvale seven days a week in the designated paddle craft zone.

For your safety, and the safety of others, you must ensure you stay within the designated paddle craft zone which has been clearly marked by warning buoys on the lake.

The recreation upgrade includes a new launch point for paddle craft, a 15-bay car park, toilet facilities and a paddle craft wash down area

Paddle craft must only be launched from the designated launch point at Fogan Cove. Stopping or mooring on any land around the lake, other than the Forgan Cove recreation area, is prohibited. Paddle craft with electric or fuel powered motors are not permitted. Swimming is not permitted at Lake Samsonvale.
