- Please remember to stay 100′ away from all other boats, swimming areas, floating docks etc.
- Operate your boat in a counter-clockwise direction around the lake.
- Please use appropriate lawn fertilizers that will not promote the growth of seaweed in the lake due to natural water run-off to the lake.
- Please keep your dogs on leashes or fenced in and be courteous and pick up your animal’s “messes” from other people’s yards.
