About Carp Park
Etang De Petit Moulin
Find out what makes our lake so special and the perfect destination for you next Carp fishing adventure.
After spending 5 long years looking for the right lake, it was not a financial venture we was after but the little boys dream, a nice lake, good surroundings, peace and tranquillity which can be hard to find in UK water's.... and the ultimate boys dream catching big carp, If it was a man made hole, that has been dug in the ground we was after then the options were huge, as there is an abundance of them in France nowadays.
Then finally in 2001 we found it, Etang de Petit Moulin - the lake dates back over 400 years, and was created by local villagers who built a huge dam in the River Tardoire, to prevent the river from flooding, as the river is sat in the middle of a huge valley.
This creating an amazing 20 acre dogleg shape lake, stretching over half a mile and set in 32 acres of mature woodland, the lake has multiple inlet streams and with the river entering from the shallow end and exiting from the dam our water is always flowing, and is not a still pond, Which gives us highly oxygenated water all year round, unlike a lot of the French Lakes which have been man made, they can struggle during our hot summer months, with losing water and needing to add additional pumps to oxygenate there lakes, creating noise and disturbance, WE DON'T, And with the old river bed, overhanging trees, sand bars, lilies, rich silt pocket's and hidden bay's, it is a fishermen's paradise, we believe the Carppark is a venue that not only looks outstanding, but will also give a whole new dimension to it's customers.
Up until now the lake has only been fished by close friends and family, which means the fish have had no pressure allowing them to grow and thrive, and a number of the carp are still virgin fish.
Due to the current economy change's and more and more people asking to come and fish we have decided to open the Carppark to the public,
so why not come and join us.
