Annual Lake Wide Picnic:  Let us know if you are interested in hosting the 2018 picnic. The first picnic (2015) was on the north side of the main lake, the second (2016) was in the west arm, and the third (2017) was on the Camp Joy side of the main lake. It is always fun to enjoy different sides of the lake, meet new friends and visit with neighbors.



2018 winner trainEvery year on July 4th there is a boat parade on Star Lake. This is a fun family activity for parade participants as well as those watching from shore. Anyone can be in the parade. Revolving trophies are awarded for the categories of "Most Creative" and "Most Patriotic" and the respective winners judge the following year. Weather permitting, the parade begins in the north arm and works its way around the lake. Here is a photo of the 2018 Most Creative award. See the Photo Gallery for pictures of the current and past boat parades.
