Boat Launch Fees

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.

More Theft and Vandalism…..

Sadly, more incidents of theft and vandalism have occurred at Marean Lake,  In the last few days a number of new incidents have been reported: a quad was stolen and a number of windows were broken.  The damage within the Marean Lake Resort appears to have been along Camp Road, but thefts were also reported in the Marean Lake Valley Resort (Woulfe/Gaetz development).

Contact the RCMP in Kelvington (306) 327-1200 or Rose Valley (306) 322-2550 if your property has been impacted.


Break-ins at Marean Lake

Over the last couple weeks there have been a number of break-ins reported at Bjorkdale, Porcupine Plain and Marean Lake, including a least a couple in our resort.  RCMP have suggested a few basic tips to help improve the security of your cabin: ensuring that all windows are closed, locked and covered by blinds; and installing a light on a timer in the cabin that turns on at dark and off again late at night or in the morning.

Contact the RCMP in Kelvington (306) 327-1200 or Rose Valley (306) 322-2550 if your property has been impacted.

Winter Preparations
