Unrestricted 4WD road access is available
to Loch Katrine, but anglers need to get the lock combination
to a gate lock to drive from Loch Katrine to the head of Lake
Sumner from Lakes Station ph 03 3144343. (Anglers can walk from this point).
Note - Access to Lake Sumner from Loch Katrine has been contentious since DoC pulled out so if you do access this area do make sure you get permission and when on the road leave gates as you find them and stay on the tracks. No dogs and do not disturb the stock.
Boats can be launched at Loch Katrine and can
be taken through to Lake Sumner via the canal that connects
the two lakes.
