The Pike Lake Community Association is a not-for-profit, volunteer based association. The association exists to promote and assist in the protection and enhancement of the natural environment including the surrounding watershed of Pike Lake.
Thanks to Linda McGuirl for the great picture of one of the many beautiful sunsets on Pike Lake. You'll recognize this picture on signs around the lake.
Welcome to the Pike Lake Community Association (PLCA) website.
Through this website, and the members’ Pike Lake Community Association Facebook Page, we hope to help keep the public and members up to date on activities on and around Pike Lake.
Pike Lake is located in eastern Ontario, primarily in Lanark County with the southern tip in Rideau Lakes County. It is just east of County Road 10 (Scotch Line Road) 15 minutes southwest of Perth, Ontario and 15 minutes northeast of Westport, Ontario. It is significantly longer than it is wide, with a public boat launch at the north east end of the lake, off CR 10. There is good access to permanent homes, seasonal cottages and a small trailer park from both public and private roads.
The PLCA organizes activities during the summer months which are a mix of lake stewardship projects and social activities. You’ll find information about these activities on both the Lake Stewardship and Events pages. The Lake Life page provides some tips on how to best enjoy your experience at Pike Lake, there is a gallery of pictures of the fun and beauty of the area, some governance documents, and links to other websites that might be of interest. And you can become a member of the association through our handy online application on our membership page.
We hope you’ll enjoy the website. Keep returning to check on updates and news from around the lake.

Lymantria Dispar Moth Invasion
Unfortunately L. Dispar Moths have invaded many areas of Eastern Ontario, including the Pike Lake area.
They are causing considerable damage to both deciduous and coniferous trees and there is the likelihood of creating far more damage this coming spring and summer.
For more information and what you can do to mitigate their damage, check the article on our Lake Life page here.
