Steward a Public Access

Thanks for your interest in Public Access on Lake Windermere! Below is a map outlining the public access sites on Lake Windermere. If you are interested in stewarding a site or joining our Public Access Committee complete the form below the map.

Why get involved?

There are 22 public access sites around Lake Windermere. Unfortunately, not all of them are that publicly accessible! Many sites are overgrown, and most are tricky to spot and pretty much unknown to the public: that’s where you come in!

What is Stewarding a Public Access?

Stewarding an access means joining the Lake Windermere Ambassadors to volunteer to:

  • Install shore access signage
  • Clean up garbage and overgrown vegetation to create a naturally welcoming environment
  • Check in on the beach occasionally to monitor waste, vandalism, or damage that need to be addressed

Stewarding a public access would be a perfect activity for families, community organizations, businesses, or a group of friends: it makes the lake better for everyone, provides a great way to give something back and lets you connect with the environment. It would be a wonderful way to teach kids about being responsible and engaged citizens.
