Q: A week at the Graviers seems expensive compared to other lakes...why?
A: Yes if you compare it to lakes with large numbers of anglers on them it might...here at The Graviers, we have less anglers sharing the lake..usually 4 anglers on 25 acres, so they can move about, fish different areas, stalk etc ...so less people on will make the per head price more expensive...

We had a lot of weed back in 2015..but have now eliminated that.
