Flag Status: YELLOW

Summerside great news!

Starting, TODAY, December 6, 2023 the lake will be open for FOOT TRAFFIC & ICE FISHING only – no skating yet! This means YELLOW flags are going up!

However, as this is the season when the shoreline can quickly reduce, and the thickness of ice can vary rapidly from one location to another on the lake.

As indicated in the information about our flag system, which can be found on our website, YELLOW flags mean the following: The lake is open for foot traffic and ice fishing, but please check the SSRA website prior to use for details regarding increased risk, and exercise caution and discretion prior to and/or during use.

Please remember to follow our rules and regulations for fishing. If you need a reminder or have yet to fill out your Acknowledgment Form, please find the form on our website > Reservations > Fishing Rules & Acknowledgment Form.

Though our Parks Team has been and will continue to monitor ice thickness, please remember ice safety can change quickly based on a variety of conditions. If you see any large cracks, standing water, or any holes larger than an auger would create, please immediately leave the ice and inform us at the SSRA.

At this time, the park is open until 6:00 pm. Once ice surfaces open, the Park hours will extend. Stay tuned for any updates via our social media, website. For more information about the Flag System please visit: > ‘Flags’ > Information.
