The following must be agreed upon in order for you to receive a boat sticker for use of the Lake.

Boaters must present life jackets/personal floatation devices when asked to do so by an Association lake patrol representative.

  1. Boaters and Fishermen must be member with Lake priviledges, or a house guest of such member, and have a proof of membership on their person all times. 
  2. Gas engines are forbidden on Lake whether they are being used or not.
  3. All boats powered by a electric motor must be registered with the State of New York.
  4. Personal flotation devices must be in boat while boating on the lake. All children under age 12 must wear a life jacket. There must be one personal floatation device for each adult on the boat (for example, 2 adults, 2 PFDs). Children under age 18 must have an adult (minimum age 18) on the boat with them, unless the child has taken a boat certification course and be able to present such certificate when asked to do so.
  5. Number of people aboard shall not exceed the maximum boat capacity.
  6. The Association allows boats to be stored on lake property as a convenience to its members with Lake privileges but it is not responsible for theft or damage of any type.
  7. All boats on Lake property must have an up-to-date sticker affixed to it no later than the July Fourth weekend. Thereafter, the boat will be removed. Upon paying a storage fee of twenty five dollars, the owner may reclaim the boat.
  8. Inflatable boats do not need stickers affixed to them unless they are left on Lake property
  9. Anyone using an inflatable boat on the lake must carry the boat sticker with them at all times.
  • No boats may be stored or used in the designated swimming area.
  • Any violation of the rules will be grounds for the sticker being revoked.
  • Stickers are not transferable and may only be affixed to the boat herein described.
  • If a sticker has been revoked, the Board of Directors will review the reason the sticker was revoked and determine the duration of time the sticker is to be revoked for.

I have read and understand the above rules.

Boats, trailers, waders and other fishing and boating equipment can spread aquatic invasive species from waterbody to waterbody unless properly cleaned, dried or disinfected after use. Although some invasive species such as water milfoil are readily visible to the human eye, many others are too small to be readily noticed. To avoid spreading invasive species please follow these guidelines:

  1. Check
  2. Clean
  3. Drain
  4. Dry
  5. Disinfect
