Safety Information

Wearing a lifejacket can save your life. Even if you're an expert, it is always best to wear a lifejacket while out on the water. It's a lot harder to put one on during an emergency.

You must not launch, beach or retrieve your paddlecraft on land other than approved designated areas.

Do not paddle in exclusion zones, or near the dam wall. Keep a safe distance from other lake users, and be aware of changing conditions.
