Our main lake measures 760m long and 100-180m wide. The lake has a concrete boat ramp and a world-class waterskiing slalom course. The lake also caters for recreational kayaking and stand-up paddleboarders. We have now designed a new booking system for people wishing to book the main lake for their choice of water sports.
