Cowles Dam

The information and related images should be verified with the relevant resort beforehand.

Not far from Alexander Dam in Springs is a similar sized dam called Cowles Dam. Although the dam is fenced off and on Sappi property, the public are allowed to use the dam for recreational purposes.The dam itself is surrounded by reeds which go far into the dam, meaning very soft sandy soil underfoot. The dam is very shallow and even between 50m and 100m it is still possible to touch the bottom. At its deepest the dam is probably not more than 2m to 3m deep.
