Opening Weekend – 14th April

Morning All, a reminder that we will be opening for the 2018 season at 8:30am on Saturday 14th April. After the winter weather the site is damp, and at the date of writing there is still a large pool of water on the entrance road, so do take care when driving in. We will review the condition of the run track once it has dried out, but it looked okay prior to the Easter rains.
See you at the lake!

2017 season now closing at midday Sunday October 8th

Morning All

As we are seeing very few of you braving the waters now we have decided that tomorrow, 8th October, will be our final day for this season.

The generator also gave up this morning so no bacon rolls, but campervan is there providing hot drinks this weekend. Without power for hot drinks and heating we are not comfortable allowing swimming to continue in water that is getting colder by the week, so tomorrow will be our last day for 2017.

Thank you all for such a busy season, and to the Trifarm team for being brilliant as always. We will reopen on April 14th.
