Access Area Summary

The Access Area Summary was developed by the Property and Safety Committee and is presented here so the membership can review the varous sites around the lake for possible use. It includes a map showing the location for each site as well as pictures and a lot description. Also included are some recommendations for possible improvements as funding becomes available. Please feel free to offer your ideas by email to the office or info@beaverlake.org.

Boating

Property owners can obtain boat stickers for powered boats for $30.00. All non-gas/diesel powered vessels (sail boats, canoes, paddle boats, row boats, etc.) are not subject to the Primary Boat Rule or required to have a Beaver Lake sticker but must have lot numbers affixed to both sides of the boat and must meet all State boating regulations. Boat stickers for powered boats must be put on by Beaver Lake personnel or by a Sheriff. Up to two primary stickers can be purchased per property. Additional secondary boat stickers can be purchased for $50.00 and have certain restrictions.

Stickers can be issued at the Association office during regular business hours or at the boat launch. In order to receive boat stickers you must be a member in good standing, have your state registration and the boat must be registered in the property owners name.

All boats and Jet Skis must have the property lot numbers placed on the boat in the correct area. Lot numbers must be placed at the rear of the boat, on both sides in a visible area above the water line. Lot numbers must be in lettering that is at least 3 inches high. Beaver Lake boat stickers will not be issued to a boat without lot numbers.

Note: See the Beaver Lake Handbook for detailed boat sticker process and guidelines.

Brush Site

Site normally opens on March 15 of the year, weather permitting.

The Brush site is intended only for brush. Grass clipping cannot be left at the brush site. Leaves are to be left in a seperate area. Follow the signs.

The Brush site is located in the southeast corner of the community, just east of the Campground and the Maintenance facility.

Normal operation of the site begins in the spring and extends to late fall, about December 1, depending on weather conditions. On most years, we will be able to dispose of Christmas trees in the first two weeks of January.

The site is periodically closed for burning the brush.

Fill Dirt Sites

The Beaver Lake Association is able to make free top soil available to members due to the unique needs for lake maintenance. We have catch basins on the major surface inflows to the lake. These catch basins, or silt ponds, serve to restrict the flow of silt into the lake. As these fill up, the soil is placed near the site to drain, dry up, and be stored.

These sites are opened up periodically for members, and sometimes for the communities surrounding Beaver Lake. It is a win/win situation to have the soil removed and put back to work. The limitations on the access are due primarily to weather, safety, and protection of nearby facilities or underground structures. Each site will have different constraints.

The status of these sites will be published on the calendar.

Fishing

Beaver Lake maintains a vital and well-stocked lake with many nice fishing locations around the lake. There are a few rules regarding fishing here at the lake that everyone should be aware of:

Fishing in Beaver Lake is restricted to property owners in good standing and their guests. Guests who are fishing shall be accompanied at all times by a property owner in good standing.

All fishermen at Beaver Lake must have a state fishing license if they are 16 years of age or older.

Fishing on Beaver Lake is governed by all state laws.

Seining of fish is not permitted on Beaver Lake.

All fish smaller than the minimum fish sizes posted on the signs around the lake shall be returned to the water at once with as little injury to the fish as possible. Nebraska law governs the size and number of species for a legal catch. In addition, Beaver Lake rules must be obeyed on fish sizes.

Fishermen shall not leave dead fish remains in the lake or on the shore.

There shall be no fishing from the sand beaches in front of the Clubhouse.

Ice Shacks used for fishing must be:
Approved by the Office for periods longer than 24 hours
Marked with the owner's lot number using 2" letters placed so they are visible from the shore
Removed from the ice prior to the Spring thaw

DISCLAIMER: Any activity on the ice is not recommended by the Beaver Lake Association due to danger caused by bubblers, underground springs, and other associated unknowns. All such activity will be at individuals' own risk.

Pet Licenses

A Lot Owner may own or maintain up to three (3) household pets.

All Lot Owners can license their pets at the Association office during normal business hours. License fees shall be $10.00 per household pet and are good for a two year period. Tags will be renewed on even number years. Tags issued on odd years will be $5.00 and be good for one year to get into the two year cycle.

Registering your pet at the office and attaching the issued tag to their collar will assist in the quick return of your pet should it get loose.
