This year is the 60th Anniversary of our lake. Everyone seemed to really enjoy seeing the ski picture from 1969. We would like to begin to gather photos and stories to begin to document Lake Stonycreek’s history. We have a bit of written information on how the lake was imagined, how the initial corporation was formed, but nothing of the real heart of the lake – the families, the stories, the pictures through the years. We would like to write down the stories, make copies of the photos. As the years pass, more and more of our history gets forgotten and possibly pictures discarded. We are not sure the best way to accomplish this yet, but we think it is an important project to begin. If you have ideas, pictures to share, stories that you could tell us please let us know and as spring turns (finally) into summer we can create a plan on how to begin to accomplish documenting the lake history. We are excited to begin!
There will be forum discussion Saturday, March 16th beginning at 1pm to discuss changes to the bylaws reflecting a more equitable method of voting for motions and elections. All lot owners and shareholders are welcome and encouraged to attend.
There will be a special meeting of the shareholders on Saturday, April 27th beginning at 1pm. All shareholders are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Both meetings will be held at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Shanksville.
Boats are now restricted to no-wake speed beginning 30 minutes after sunset and goes into effect in the 2019 boating season. This regulation is being put into effect due to the hazards associated with boating on our lake after dark. The PA boating regulation of all watersports ending at sunset is still in effect.
Hunting waterfowl or Trapping on Lake Stonycreek shall be allowed only for Lake Stonycreek property owners, with a permit issued by the SVDC board of directors. Hunting waterfowl or trapping is only permitted in the waters and land owned and controlled by SVDC in and around the “Fingers” area of the lake. It is the responsibility of the permitted property owner to know the property boundaries.
If access to SVDC waters and property is through adjacent private property, the permit holder must obtain permission from those property owners.
A permit form is available as a link on the SVDC website. The permit must be completed by a lot owner and signed by an executive of the board. Guests are allowed while being accompanied by the permitted lot owner.
All PA Game Commission and Federal Migratory Game Bird Rules and Regulations must be followed by all permitted Lake Stonycreek property owners and their guests.
Trespassing on SVDC property and waters shall be enforced by the SVDC board of directors and State Police. All game law violations shall be enforced by the Pennsylvania Game commission.
This permission may be revoked by the SVDC board of directors, at their discretion, at any time, with due cause.
For those of you who don’t know, here’s the situation…
- The downstream valve needs to be repaired, as it did last year, due to an issue with the brass collar.
- The valve can still be jacked open or closed…..not ideal but possible with some effort.
- The part has been ordered and, if all goes as planned, the valve will be reassembled and functional by Wednesday.
- We’ll go back to regulating valve opening relative to target depth once the repair has been completed.
Thank you and we will update you as things develop.
