Boat Launch Membership.png

Got your own boat or board and want access to your local paddle spot as much as you like? Our unlimited membership gives you access to our lake any time we are open throughout the season without being limited to two hours. Members will be able to book bays giving them the ability to set up and picnic if they wish. Each bay will take a maximum of two cars.

We have created a facebook group for those who are a part of the membership at Lake 86 Craft Launchers this gives a place for you to ask questions to us or the massed knowledge of the others

Membership Options for 2022

We are now offering an annual membership and you can sign up already for next summer too!

Our Annual membership will run from the 1st Oct 2021 to the 1st Oct 2022. Through the winter we will be open four mornings a week: 

Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Thursday all 8am-11am.

From April we will be back open 7 days a week and from May there will be two evenings a week.

Annual Membership cost: £200 for the first craft £40 for any additional craft (additional craft paid at reception) 

2022 Summer Season Membership will run from April 2022 - the end of September 2022, we will be open 7 days a week from April and from May there will be two evenings a week.

2022 Season Membership Cost: £150 for the first craft £30 for each additional craft (additional Craft paid at reception)

With Both memberships you will get unlimited use of the lake (inside opening times). 

In 2022 you won't need to book to come down to launch and we will keep the bays for members use only.

(the bays will require booking, though if available will be bookable on the day)


From the end of the 2021 season ALL users of the lake will be required to wear a PFD including over 18's and regardless of leashes. This is to fall inline with all governing bodies recommendations. 

We do occasionally have ‘exclusive use’ bookings throughout the summer we do our best to keep these to a minimum and away from the summer holidays and weekends, where they do occur we will give several weeks notice by way of sign in reception and post in the Facebook group.
