The LSA Board of Directors has received several complaints regarding loud music and behavior at various parks, including Pow Wow Point. LSA Members are urged to be courteous and mindful of neighboring homes by our parks, and to conduct themselves in a respectful manner within the rules and guidelines outlined below.
There are seven (7) common properties (parks) owned by the Association. These 7 parks are Shady Oaks, Cedar Point, Tall Pines, Pawnee Point, Pow Wow Point, Tepee Island and the Boat Ramp. These common properties are for the exclusive use and enjoyment of Members in good standing and their guests. These parks fall under Township ordinance, as well as Association rules.
As posted on our website http://www.indianlakes.org/pavilion-parks/park-rules/ the following Association rules apply to all parks:
A.) The parks are open daily from dawn to dark. The parks are closed to all activity after dark.
B.) Consumption of illegal substances on the premises is prohibited.

D.) The use of fireworks are prohibited in the parks, except for the Association contracted, professional display over the Fourth of July holiday at Tepee Island.

In addition, these parks fall under Township ordinance, including, in part:

G. Use of loudspeaker-It shall be unlawful to use a loudspeaker, public address system or amplifier…”
In addition to State law, the Lake Shores Association has adopted several regulations that pertain to our private lake. The LSA Board of Directors has also received several complaints of Members not adhering to the rules and regulations posted at the boat launch and on our website
LSA no wake boating hours have been a standing rule adhered to and respected by LSA Members, and these rules will be enforced. Any Member watercraft that does not follow the LSA boating rules will lose watercraft registration privileges, and unregistered watercraft are not allowed on Indian Lake. Members are again urged to be courteous and mindful of neighboring homes and watercraft, and to be respectful of boating hours and regulations.
“All watercraft being placed on the lake must be registered with the Association and display a current Indian Lake numbered sticker attached to the bow of the vessel on the starboard side. Watercraft registration is available to all Members in good standing. Watercraft registration is not available to anyone that is not a Member, and the use of the lake by unregistered watercraft is prohibited. Association registration of the watercraft requires that the watercraft be titled in the member’s name. There are no boating privileges for unregistered boats.
The Association maintains a gated and locked boat ramp. The boat ramp facilities are for the exclusive use of Members in good standing. The gate is secured by a combination lock. The combination is changed annually on April 1. Members are advised of the lock combination numbers upon payment of their annual maintenance assessment. The dissemination of the lock combination to anyone other than a Member in good standing is prohibited.
All watercraft operations must adhere to the State of Michigan Boating Laws including, but not limited to:
A.) All watercraft traffic must at all times proceed in counter-clockwise fashion around the lake.
B.) All watercraft must stay a minimum distance of 100 feet from all other boats and other objects.
C.) A spotter must be present on any watercraft that in any fashion has a person in tow.
Indian Lake restricts high speed boating, in any form, to the hours of 11:00 A.M. to 8:30 P.M. At all other times “no wake” speed limits apply.”
