New Boat Storage Racks

The area to the left of the swimming area is scheduled to be cleaned and brand new racks will be built for sale to store your boats. In order for the clean-up to go smoothly, we require that you remove your canoes, paddle boats and kayaks by May 31st. 

Please Note: If your boat is not removed by May 31st it will be considered abandoned and therefore removed.

Information on the new storage rack purchase process and associated cost will be provided soon. Stay tuned!
