Lake Person is a pretty lake, overlooked by Purple Hill on the side of State Highway 73, the West Coast Highway. It is between Goldney Saddle and the Craigieburn access road. It’s a good place to stop for a snack and a swim, and also has a campground. The willow trees around western edge of the lake provide some shelter on a hot day and you can fish for trout and salmon in season.
There are two nearby smaller lakes you can also reach and fish in from the highway – Lake Sarah about 2.5kms along Craigieburn Road and Lake Grassmere across a private accessway.
