Nature Days Out

Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire most exciting watersports and leisure activity centre

Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery at Spring Lakes

You can come and enjoy our surroundings without having to get wet, by enjoying a walk or cycle around our 3 stunning lakes


We are busy creating paths for family and leisure cycling, plus more challenging trails and a pump track for children. Our location is perfect to connect to many existing networks along the River Trent and Attenborough Nature Reserve.  We are planing a lot more routes in 2020.

Bird Watching

We are currently installing a bird watching hide and screen in quiet areas of our site so bring your binoculars and see what you can find. These areas have been chosen to give the best possible view of the varied wildlife we share our site with, so feel free to ask directions to these viewing positions.

Dog Walking

Dog walkers will be able to have a walk along the River Trent, visit Attenborough Nature Reserve or Cranfleet Lock in the opposite direction. There is also a wonderful circuit around our lakes which is approximately 3 miles long. Directions will be available from the site reception if required.

Nature Walks

At Spring Lakes we have something for everyone, whether your after exhilarating watersports or just a gentle walk around our beautiful site. Make use of all we have to offer, all set against the incredible backdrop of the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire countryside!

Picnic Areas

We have many scenic areas that are perfect for you to picnic for your day out at Spring Lakes! Grab your best china, blanket and basket or simply a sandwich and a bottle of drink and make it a day out to remember! We will be developing additional areas over the next 12 months for picnics.

A great day out for all the family
