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.

2024 Membership – Its Time to Renew or Join

Thank you to all our members, who made 2023 another record breaking year for membership at 166 members (however only 42% 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 Opened November 1

The Watchic Lake dam gate was opened on Wednesday November 1, 2023 for the winter. Following the opening, the lake level will go down to its winter level over the course of about two to three weeks (depending in part on rainfall). Lowering the lake level protects our shoreline from winter ice damage. Plan your boat and dock removal accordingly.
