Support Your Lake

The Horn Lake Property Owners’ Association (HLPOA) exists to represent and advocate for the concerns of property owners on Horn Lake.

While we all enjoy the benefits of living and cottaging there is no certainty that the pristine environment that we currently benefit from will continue to exist into the future.

It is very important that we have an Association with a strong voice (i.e. many members) in order to be heard on issues such as development on our lake, water quality, property taxes and lake spirit.

The continued work of the Association requires the support of all property owners on the lake.
