We Take Paddle Safety Seriously!

From proper fit of your life jacket with emergency whistle to paddling tips at the dock, your safety is important to us. Learn more about paddle and water safety at this Washington State Parks link.

Here are some Lacamas Lake specific tips:
• On your knees - When getting on and off a paddleboard at the dock, follow Sweetwater employee direction and ALWAYS be on your hands and knees. A fall there could result in injury.
• Give boaters the right-of-way - Lacamas Lake plays host to many motorized boats. Avoid crossing in front of boats at the launch area and paddle near shore so they may use the deep center of the lake to navigate safely. If a boat gives off a wake, approach it at a slight angle to help to avoid capsizing.
• Paddle together - Stay close enough for visual or verbal contact with your group. Bring a phone in a Sweetwater supplied dry bag to make a call if you need help.
• Expect the unexpected - It is rare, but if you capsize or fall out of a kayak, don’t try to get back inside as it may sink. Take hold and swim with it to the shore or dock for help.
