Lake Carroll Association

Property owners in the planned residential community collectively own 1,340 acres of recreational amenities in addition to their own properties.

Other member only amenities include 14 miles of ATV/walking/hiking trails, Lake Carroll for boating, swimming and outstanding fishing, a marina complex, an equestrian center, a campground and the Pinetree Recreation Lodge.

How Lake Carroll Works

The Lake Carroll Association is governed by four controlling documents which make the community a safe and enjoyable place to live or visit. These documents include:

1.The General Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions which are part of every member’s property deed, including the Supplemental Declarations for each subdivision. Declarations can be modified every ten years by vote of the membership.

2. The Association’s Bylaws which can be changed annually by vote of the membership.

3. The Architectural Review Guidelines expand upon the architectural standards established in the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions.

4. The Association’s Rules and Regulations which can be changed at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

The combination of these documents, and state statues, establishes a reasonable order and maintain reasonable use of the common properties, also known as amenities. The documents are intended to help members understand the goals of the Association as a private residential and recreational community.
