Recently SHPOA trustees have gotten phone calls late at night with callers complaining that boats are out on the lake after dark running fast enough to make a wake, and playing their music at levels much too loud. PLEASE use common courtesy and common sense at all times when on Shawnee Lake; but especially at night. While some folks see the night time as a great time to party hearty, other folks are trying to enjoy a quiet sunset, or to put their young children to sleep.
If complaints continue, Lake Patrol will be forced to do as it has in the past, and confront these noisy boaters on the lake. Several years ago late at night one trustee quietly motored up to a noisy boatload of people to tell to quiet down. When he pulled up beside their boat, he instantly saw several people drinking alcohol. There is more to this story, but suffice it to say that the property owner and all his/her family members were immediately banned from the lake for 12 months.
Please, don't let this happen to you. Use courtesy and common sense on the lake, and obey state law and our own by-laws, rules, and regulations. Keep your late-night boating fun safe and discreet.
Again we ask you, PLEASE.
As of 3:00 pm Sunday, June 25th, 2017, the No-Wake Alert which was issued on June 23rd has been lifted.
Please keep in mind that, always after high-water conditions there is a strong risk of floating debris which may have come in from upstream, or floated away from our own shoreline somewhere. Such debris doesn't always float up fully visible on the surface, and can pose a hazard to boats and people being towed behind boats on ski's, wakeboards, tubes, etc.
There is a NO-WAKE ALERT for Shawnee Lake due to high water from the large amount of rain we are receiving. Please check back to see when the no wake has been lifted.
