Information

Porters Lagoon was a popular aquatics venue for the local population up to about 1990. It was used for recreational sailing, windsurfing, and canoeing. Annual water based carnivals were held, and hundreds of people came from near and far to enjoy the festivities. The Riverton District High School used it for aquatics camps on several occasions in the early eighties. But during the mid to late 1980's it gradually began to dry up, became clogged with water weed and now is very shallow and salty.
