Boat launches

Looking for a boat launch?

Lake levels are high, but these boat launches remain open:

  • Cedar Creek Park - 5200 Lakeshore Road. Please note, this boat launch is only suitable for launching small boats and parking is extremely limited.   
  • Cook Road Boat Launch - 500 Cook Road, beside the Eldorado Hotel

Residents and visitors are encouraged to enjoy local lakes with wake-free options. Those choosing to use motorized watercraft are urged to be respectful – slow down and keep away from shore so wakes do not cause further erosion or flooding of lakeshore properties. Boaters also need to be cautious about wood debris floating under the surface of the lake and submerged infrastructure.

The following boat launches are temporarily closed:

Cook Road Boat Launch parking


  • $5 flat rate per day (24 hrs) for vehicles with a boat trailer 
  • $1 per hour for single vehicles

The parking lot is open from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. seven days a week. Overnight parking is permitted. Parking permits can be purchased for up to seven days at a time at either of the parking meters on site.

Single vehicles are asked not to park in designated boat trailer spots; those doing so will be ticketed. 

Noise control

The Noise Control Bylaw regulates that no person shall operate a motor boat so as to cause noise which disturbs the peace, rest, enjoyment, comfort or convenience of the neighbourhood or of persons in the vicinity. Register a noise complaint online.
