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.
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.

Message from the Board of Directors of the Pike Lake Community Association:
Following our Board of Directors meeting this past week, we have decided to cancel our Annual General Meeting and all social events for this year. Yes, these are troubling times but the welfare of our members is far more important at this time.
This was to be an election year but all of the Board of Directors have agreed to extend their term for one more year. In order to extend our mandate and approve our annual operating budget for this year, we will require a vote. All voting members will be contacted by email or by regular mail at the beginning of July. Please renew your annual membership online at www.pikelake.ca. Full elections will take place in 2021.
We will continue to provide you with lake information throughout the year. We will also report on our achievements this year and on our own ongoing projects, such as the Walleye Enhancement project with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. We will provide you with a complete report of the Membership Research Survey from this past fall and update you on the actions we have planned for this spring and summer.
We will also continue to provide you with any new information regarding our cellular phone and internet survey and will also produce a new Pike Lake Post for you this spring. Our hazard buoys will be placed in the lake again this month. Should any of you see the need for another hazard buoy in a particular location please contact us at email@example.com .
We wish you and your family the very best of health.
