Summer Safety Reminders

  •   PA Boating Safety Course: Powered watercraft operators, regardless of age, are required to have completed a PA Boating Safety Course and while operating a boat, have in their possession their certificate ID card. 

  • Travel in a Counterclockwise Direction.

  •  Ensure there is plenty of slow/stop space between your watercraft and skiers/tubers to help avoid accidents when skiers/tubers fall in the water. 

  • Skiers, if you fall, hold up your ski so you’re visible.

  • Never operate a vessel with passengers outside the rails of a pontoon or on the swimdeck of a runabout.  If the passenger were to fall off the vessel, it could be tragic.

  • Don’t speed. Practice courteous driving.

  • Follow Your boat’s Capacity/Weight limits.  Overloading a vessel can end a fun ride quickly and tragically.

  • Educate your Guests on Lake Rules.

  • Non-powered vessels should always be equipped with Coast Guard approved PFDs, a signaling device, and, if out on the water near/ after sundown, lights. All are essential to the safety of the operator.

  •  Swimmers, stay within 20 ft of the shoreline.

  • Enjoy the Lake & STAY SAFE!

Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association

The Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association (LSLOA) is an independent social club, not operating under the auspices of the Stonycreek Valley Development Corporation (SVDC).  For clarification, the role of the Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association should not be confused with the governance role of a “homeowners association” (HOA) which lot owners may be familiar with in other communities. At Lake Stonycreek, the administrative governance role is held by the SVDC.
