To our great disappointment, we could not open Lake Minear for swimming this summer, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many factors went into this difficult decision,  and we’re disappointed too- we’ve all volunteered our time and talent to help the lake thrive, and none of us wanted to see this come to pass. But in the end, the safety of our members and our staff has to come first.

We are, however, pleased to offer a new Summer Fishing Membership tier, which will allow you and those you are sheltering with access to the lake for fishing from the shore from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. all summer long. This summer’s memories might not be of swimming or picnicking, but perhaps you’ll always remember the huge fish you caught!*

You’ve been sent this link because you’ve already purchased a lake membership. You can use this form to tell us whether you’d like a full or partial refund, or if you’d like to switch your membership to a fishing membership. Once you fill this out, we’ll process your request as quickly as we can.

If you have any questions or issues with this form, please let us know at


*If you don’t catch a big fish, feel free to tell everyone you did- we’ll back you up!
