About Lake Pleasant Resort

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.

              We really enjoyed our stay in a home away from home Everything we needed were available It felt that we were the only guests because every "house" is private Houses are far enough apart to be totally on your one. Everything were clean and neat Staff very friendly Tranquil

              Loved the fact that there were heaters. Place was cleaned daily by friendly staff. There was a fair amount to do on the in-between days when we weren't out. DS TV helped for entertaining people with sports channels. Most of all I loved that all 9 of us could spend time together playing games and just enjoying the peace and quiet that Lake Pleasant offered. Stuart was professional and on the ball, available for any questions or issues.
