  • 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.

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.

Lake Pleasant Resort is a holiday destination on its own. You could lose yourself there without needing to go anywhere else.Although Sedgefield and Knysna are close at hand. The timber cottage accommodation is wonderful and the facilities allow you to really relax and unwind especially as it is fully serviced. Thanks Stuart, we will definitely be back without a doubt.
