Spider Lake Springs Resort Update

September 15, 2020  Spider Lake Springs Resort Update

Hi everyone, so much of the Board of Directors energy and time over the past 6 months has been focused on how to best navigate through the pandemic situation in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy as well as happy and satisfied. The Board has had to make some difficult decisions that entailed long discussion.

Twenty sites have been sold since April, we would like to say welcome to all. We would also like to remind everyone that as an owner it is your responsibility to read and abide by the Rules and Regulations and that you make your guests aware of the rules.

We would also like to remind owners of Section 4. Campsite Occupancy and Section 5. Campsite Utility Services.

Section 4. Campsite Occupancy

4.2  No License Holder may utilize his/her designated lot for recreational purposes outside the  designated period commencing April 15th to October 15th in any year.  With the exception of attending for short periods not exceeding three (3) consecutive days during the non camping season for purposes of inspection, repairs or modifications to camping units and site improvements or for other similar non-camping activities.

Section 5. Campsite Utility Services  

5.1  Water and sewer services at the Resort are only available to the campsites from April 15th to October 15th each year.

License Holders must complete an Owner Information Form annually, if you have not already done so please fill out the attached form and email it to spiderlakesecretary@gmail.com.

Speeding has been a major issue this year, please slow down, the speed limit is 5km/h.

Speak to the manager or staff if you require assistance for parking when overflow is full.

If you are selling your lot you MUST have it inspected by staff to confirm it is in complete compliance with current regulations. You can find information on our web site at http://spiderlakesprings.org/news/ under the Sites for Sale and Lease tab, Important Notice to Seller and Purchaser of Shares at Spider Lake Springs Resort document.
