The Chesley Lake Cottage Association (CLCA) was formed in 1987 with a mandate to improve the quality of the lake water. In 1988, the CLCA had raised the necessary funds to install the “Lake Lung” to add oxygen in the deepest part of the lake. As of 2015 membership, membership had grown to 368 with an annual fee of $35.00.
CLCA’s mandate is to:
Monitor and improve lake water quality
Maintain the lake oxygenation bubbler system
Participate in available fish stocking programs
Address concerns brought forward by members of the CLCA
The Board maintains an ongoing relationship with agencies such as
The Township of South Bruce Peninsula
The Ministry of Natural Resources
The Ministry of the Environment
All households on the lake are encouraged to purchase a yearly membership for a modest fee. This membership entitles the person to:
Full membership and member benefits to the Federation of Ontario Cottager’s Associations (FOCA)

Actively participate with other members to keep the lake a prime vacation & recreation destination.
