New speed bumps have been installed
Excessive speed creates a safety hazard for pedestrians and increases dust. In order to reduce speeds, the RM has now installed several speed bumps (marked with flags) on the 2 main access roads into the resort from grid road #679.
Speed on the main access roads is limited to 40 kph
Speed within the resort is limited to 20 kph
Zebra mussels and Quagga mussels are two species that, when introduced to a new ecosystem, reproduce at such a rapid rate that they then over take the ecosystem and kill everything in it as they do not have any natural predators in Saskatchewan, Canada, or North America.
They have been confirmed present in Lake Winnipeg as well as the Great Lakes. Additionally they have been found in every state in the USA.
If there is a boat that has been in a lake in these contaminated areas, they must be quarantined and disinfected before they are allowed in Saskatchewan lakes. If you spot a boat with a license plate from these areas, call the number on the sign and do not allow the boat in the water.
Eventually we will have pamphlets with more information available at the store as well as on the MLAC website.

With the Canada Day long weekend a few days away boating season is in full-swing. This sign from Greenwater Lake Provincial Park is a good reminder of an important rule on the water. The high water levels this spring and high winds have undermined parts of the shoreline of Marean lake, and wakes from boats using excessive speed near shore only compound the problem.
Please remember to reduce speeds close to land as a courtesy to people on the shore and to prevent damage.

Everyone Welcome! All activities will be at the beach or the green space to the west of the beach.
New boat launch fees have been implemented for the 2017 boating season.
Cabin owners within the Marean Lake Resort (the community that contains McCrea Beach) will continue to use the boat launch adjacent to the beach at no cost. Anyone else using this launch (including cabin owners in the resorts to the north and west of the beach, and the general public) is required to pay a launch fee of $50 per season or $10 for a weekend.
Appropriate stickers for all boats are available at ‘Bob’s Place’, the store at the beach.
Please remember that parking for boats and trailers near the beach is extremely limited and day-users will need to consider alternatives.
Are you an ATV driver within the Resorts at Marean Lake? Do you know he rules of the road? The RCMP recently ticketed at ATV driver without a helmet in our resort. Be legal and be safe!
If you are an owner within the Marean Lake Resort (formerly the McCrea or MLR Resort) you should have received an email yesterday with planned changes to docking in the marina, boat launch fees and daily docking. If you are an owner and didn’t receive the email, please click here to get added. While we post general information on this website and the Facebook page, for many issues we prefer to communicate directly with owners through email.
