Season Opening

The water finally got turned on to the sites on Sunday.  Dave Showed up Sunday afternoon so we were able to leave it on so it is ready for everyone’s use by our official May 1 season opening.

There will still be a few obstacles come this weekend:

  •  I have not received word yet that Benson Excavating has been there to repair the boat landing yet. I am sure the rain the last two days has been impeding his arrival.
  •  Without the boat ramp repaired the docks are not in yet.
  • Our government has not completely relaxed Covid restrictions yet.  Gathering room and game room are still closed for now.  The same protocols as last year are still in place for the laundry and fish cleaning house.
  • Shower house is open and will remain open for the season.  We will be closing off parts of it to maintain social distancing to keep the county satisfied.
  • Laundry equipment is being scheded with Yde’s to be started up the week of May 10

Caretakers- Dave is back and will be working Wednesday through Saturday.  We hired a new caretaker this year. His name is Mike and he will be working Sunday through Thursday.

  • One vehicle per site
  • Park on your own site.
  • The three spots in front of the house are going to be posted with reserved signs on them.  These spots are strictly reserved for staff and visitors.

Overflow lot – With the May 1 season start upon us extra boats trailers etc, need to be getting removed.  The lot during the season is for putting your boat and or trailer up there and for visitor/guest parking or a trailer for use specific to your time of stay.  
Owners with seasonal renters please forward the information on to them. Thank you.

Spring is coming, albeit slowly.

Certified Pool Operator Training

We operate a pool that is licensed through the county.  Part of our license requirement is to have certified pool operators.  We are looking to our members to help in expanding the number of community members available with this training.  

Certified Pool Operator(CPO) clases are two 8 hour day classes.  These classes are held in various locations, and some are being offered virtually due to COVID restrictions.  Certified Pool Technician(CPT) classes are available online where you have a 30 day window to complete course materials and tests for certification.  The above classes average around $350.

The board is looking at paying for these classes.  In return we are looking for your help with our pool.  Helping with making sure care takers are properly trained in maintaining our pool.  Periodically helping with pool duties, cleaning and chemical monitoring, on caretakers days off.

If you are interested and would like more details please respond to the board email.

Thank you for considering,


House Project

Based on the majority vote of association input to repurpose the house/store/office space, we are looking for individual(s) to spearhead this project. The task at hand is to come up with plans how to best utilize the space to benefit our community. Work with county planners.  Determine reutilization plans of materials from the current structure.  Demolition process.  

If you are interested in helping out with this please reply to the board email.

Thank you for considering,


Happy 2021

Greetings HLC, I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year! Not everyone reads the minutes posted on our website, so I thought I would take a few minutes and send out a few current updates. Your board members for 2021 are as follows

  • President – Ed Gangl
  • Vice President – Kurt Wuollet
  • Treasurer – Jim Boldenow
  • Recording Secretary(Treasurer’s Assistant) – Kathy Duderstadt
  • Member at Large – Jim Apple

After review of the ballot questions from this past fall.  By majority vote of the association the board is amending  the rules and regulations to include the site setback language and the storage unit language as voted on.

Be watching for a couple of follow up emails looking for volunteers for certified pool operator training and individual(s) to spearhead the house /store/office project.  Details will be in those emails.

The actual 2021 season and opening of the campground is still a few months out. We continue to monitor the information on COVID-19 requirements.  I imagine around mid April we will be getting out to you the COVID-19 restrictions that will be placed on us as a campground. 

We ALL are hoping for a more normal year!

See you at the Lake,
