Sasamat in 2021
Jun. 2021 • Friends
Sasamat provides a lovely white sand beach on a lake that can be quite clean. The cleanliness depends on the number of people in the water - crowds equal murk and kids doing what kids do. Likewise, for part of the Spring, there can be too many geese with poop everywhere including the water.
It’s very popular with open water swimming, having little or no current and being in a largely protected valley the water is rarely more than rippled.
Power boats are not allowed, but it is popular with kayakers, stand up paddle boarders and floated of all kinds.
One recent development is pay parking. However if you get there early and go in for a swim around the lake you can easily get out before 10:00 and not have to pay.

Hope this helps?

They made everyone walk all the way up in the boiling heat to the beach for an hour telling everyone that parking was full but the whole lot was empty….terrible experience to get up there and for no reason

Concession is great...hate that people are taking up all the beach space by erecting tents..you are not camping. Do motorcycles have to pay for parking now?

"Great spot to explore"
Jan. 2021
This was our first time exploring this area. We enjoyed the 3 km walk around the lake.The trail is very well maintained with lots of board walk and gravel path. The washroom was closed at the White Pine beach area due to being the winter season. Bathrooms were available at the main parking lot. Being January, there was lots of parking and only a few others were walking the trails.
Sasamat Lake is a beautiful spot to check out!

Warm lake water.......but VERY popular
Aug. 2020
Extremely popular and busy beach in the summertime. I even went on a Monday and the parking lot was full. You can park along the roadside and walk in.The main draw is that the water is very warm and it's got a nice white beach. So, good for small kids.

Tip: If you aren't with children and want a hike, you can park elsewhere and hike in. I parked at Woodhaven Swamp and hiked in through the forest. There's no other beaches but you can walk around the lake and find a quieter spot to swim from.

The lake is 5/5 but as an experience it loses points for being just too darn busy

Nice spot except it's like Coney Island on summer weekends.
Aug. 2020 • Family
Beautiful spot and the lake can really warm up by about mid -July most years but it is also overrated. On summer weekends its the most cramped beach ive ever seen. Its too crowded. Impossible to find parking after about 10am. Theyre trying to limit crowds by closing the lots early and they're ticketing and towing cars left on Bedwell Bay road so if the lots are full your only option is to take transit or cycle in. But it isn't doing much to ease the crowds. White pine beach is really just 2 small beaches and on busy days don't expect alot of space. The water also has had e-coli issues probably from a large flock of Canada geese and their droppings. It is much nicer if you go on a less busy day.

Hike from White Pine Beach to the Upper Look-out.
Nov. 2019
A beautiful morning - see pictures - we walked along the beach and over the bridge then up through forests to the "Upper Look Out Trail". Stopped for lunch on the rocky look out. Took a longer route back to White Pine Beach. The pristine former "Memorial Trail" up to the look-out is now being used by motorcyclists so it's beginning to show wear.

Kayaked and walked around the lake
Sep. 2019
Sasamat is a lovely lake that takes approx 45 minutes to walk around at a leisurely pace. Usually takes us about 45-60 minutes to kayak the whole lake. Perfect spot for us.

Nice beach
Jun. 2019
In summer it's super busy! It's a family favourite. But the water there is clean and the perfect temperature for a swim, in my opinion. Parking is full rather early. If you have the time and don't want to take along too much stuff there's also a bus going there once every hour.
