Welcome to Watchic Lake!

Parent and Chicks July 2023

Watchic Lake is a 448 acre spring fed lake. The first camp on the lake was built in 1900, and there are now about 250 properties on the lake. Watchic Lake offers clean water, swimming, good fishing, and a variety of wildlife. The Watchic Lake Association works to improve, protect, and preserve the lake’s water quality and fragile ecosystem.

2023 Membership – Its Time to Renew or Join

Thank you to all our members, who made 2022 a record breaking year for membership (however only 45% of properties are members). Your support helps fund water quality testing, dam maintenance, invasive plant mitigation, and securing grants for lake property owners and road associations. See our membership page for more details.

Dam Update September 2023

WLA volunteers continue to check the dam regularly responding to and preparing for heavy rains including those possibly from Hurricane Lee. The dam was fully opened on September 13th with significant rain forecast. The gate will be adjusted if needed after the rains. Please keep in mind that water level observations will vary significantly around the lake due to differing wind conditions. Mother Nature and managing the water level of a 450 acre lake via a 10 foot wide dam gate is an inexact science – your understanding is appreciated.
