    Llyn Peris is the receiving lake of the Dinorwig Pumped Storage power station. It was enlarged from its original size when the power station was constructed to accomodate the extra water from the enlarged upper lake Marchlyn Mawr.

    It now looks very ugly compared to the nice small lake it used to be.

    Default Paddle on Llyn Padarn next door

    I have paddled on Llyn Padarn just next door several times, there are lots of bays and picnic areas on the Llanberis side as well as good parking and toilets etc in the country park. This is an area well used by lots of outdoor centres but I have never heard of anyone paddling on Llyn Peris, not sure if you can or not I guess not. But certainly am no expert. In my experience you can have a nice time on Llyn Padarn just watch if it is windy because it tends to funnel straight down the lake which can make it hard work.

    Hope this is useful.
    Happy paddling

    PS: I'm sure that the shop surf lines I think would know so it might be worth giving them a ring.
