  • Description
  • Facilities
Lake Pleasant Resort is a peaceful shady resort situated halfway between Wilderness and Knysna, on the shores of the Garden Route's only freshwater-lake, Groenvlei. Groenvlei forms part of the Goukamma Nature Reserve and is also part of the Knysna and Wilderness National Lakes Area.

Lake Pleasant has been managed and owned by the same family since 1962 and boasts the only camping resort along a bass fishing lake in the Southern Cape. The resort features a squash court as well as a restaurant, pub, convenience store, take-away, bass shop, tennis court, mountain bikes for hire, two swimming pools, and safe swimming at the resort's Lake Beach.

Lake Pleasant also offers rowing boats and canoes for hire, magnificent bass fishing, private mooring facilities should you bring your own craft, a large games area, and a self-service laundromat. The sea, with its 14 km stretch of golden-sanded beach, the proclaimed Goukamma Marine Reserve, is just over the hill and easily accessible by most vehicles.

In addition, accommodation at Lake Pleasant has proudly received a 3 Star self-catering grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa annually since 2002.

10 Reviews on Lake Pleasant Resort

We had a lovely stay at this resort. The tennis courts and table tennis was freely available for kids to use. The jungle gym area kept our 5 year old busy. The loan of the bike from the office kept the 13 year old busy. We could relax in our quiet garden cottage with all the facilities we needed. No need to trek with kitchen things. All in all the kids had a great time outdoors and we could relax and did some boating with the kids. We will be back.

What a wonderful, quiet, delightful place to stay. The accommodation was spacious, and neat. The surroundings, beach and lake were just perfect, with plenty of peace and quiet to be had. A definite favourite.
