Kakut Lake

Just east of the Highway 2 exit for Woking, about 11 kilometres down Highway 677 (Peoria Road) you'll find Kakut Lake.

According to their website, Kakut Lake Resort is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers. The campsite is available to campers or visitors that would like to come to fish for the day.

Dogs are welcome in the camp but they should be on leashes and cleaned up after. A children's park is available for public use, as well as Devon field (baseball diamond). The small pond is stocked with 1500, 6-8 inch trout each year. The big lake is not stocked.
