Dam Boards - Winter Drawdown

In keeping with the annual drawdown of the lake for the Winter season the WLA Dam Chariman, Charles Johnson, plans to remove one dam board this weekend (Oct. 14th / 15th). The second board will be removed the following weekend (Oct. 21st / 22nd). 

Please be sure that your docks, boats, etc. are properly secured. 


WLA Directories

Update  10/10/2017:

I was able to create a workaround of sorts for access to the WLA Directories and have restored direct access to them from the Navigation area. Access to both directories is also available from the Resource Center. 

To view them online click on the directory you wish to see (if you are in the Resource Center click on View under the directory name) and enter the password when prompted. 

If you want to download either directory instead of entering the password click on the down arrow in the upper right of the displayed screen. 

If you have any issues please drop me a note by e-mailing the web manager

Beach Area Rules

posted Aug 12, 2017, 5:41 PM by Washington Lake Association   [ updated Aug 12, 2017, 5:42 PM ]

Please be mindful when using the beach area. Here are a few rules that we would appreciate beach users to follow:

1) Please remove all of your items and trash when you leave. We do not have trash pickup. This includes cigarette butts.

2) All boats, kayaks, canoes, etc should be brought onshore at the boat ramp. For swimmers safety we do not allow any boating in the swimming area or boats being pulled up on the beach. 

3) No fishing from the beach area or from the swim float.

4) The small trash containers in the bath house are ONLY for hygiene products and baby wipes. Do not flush anything down the toilets except toilet paper.

Thank you.

Floating items

posted Jul 31, 2017, 7:23 AM by Washington Lake Association   [ updated Jul 31, 2017, 7:27 AM ]


We have received reports of a few items found floating in the lake. These items were apparently blown off docks, yards or moorings (broken lines). Finding the owner is sometimes a challenge. We encourage everyone to put their name and phone number on anything that may get blown into the lake and float away (floats, small boats, tubes, floating swim platforms and ramps, etc.). This will speed up the process in finding the proper owners. 

Thank you!
