What do Lake Associations do?

Big, small, old, or new, all lake associations’ purposes are similar – to maintain, protect and improve the quality of its waterways, lakes, and watershed, its membership and property owner’s interests, and the lifestyle and lake community. It is one of the most important tools in building a strong sense of community and well-being for our lake and adding to your property’s value.

RLCA Membership Signs

Each new member is entitled to two signs (one for your dock, one for your driveway) and a map of the Redstone Group of Lakes. Please email membership@redstonelake.com to arrange for a replacement if needed.

Membership Payments

We encourage our members to make their membership payments using eTransfer if they are able to do online banking, this makes it so convenient as it eliminates the need to go to the post office to retrieve the mail and a trip to the bank in Haliburton to deposit the cheque 🙂

When sending an eTransfer please include your cottage address or your email address in the message section so that we can identify you if there happens to be another member with the same name as you. 

Helping us with new neighbours – Memberships

The success of our association depends entirely upon everyone’s annual participation. If you have new lake neighbours who aren’t yet aware of the RLCA, please encourage them to join! Or contact: membership@redstonelake.com
