Lake Walk Program
WALK WITH US!
Gain a new perspective of the lake and enjoy seeing different neighborhoods. We are happy to promote healthy living through fitness and fun by organizing four walks this summer.
Join us on Friday mornings at 9:00 AM for a one hour walk on different segments of Lake Drive. Each walk is approximately 2.5 miles long. If you prefer to go farther, go for it!

Spring Beach Clean-Up
We love clean shorelines and hope you do too!
Trash left on the beach is not just unattractive, it can wash back into the water and create safety hazards for boaters, swimmers, and aquatic life.
Come and volunteer to clean up shoreline trash.
Meet at either Sorenson or Prestrude’s Beach Access where trash bags will be supplied. Pack your own gloves. Travel to either Prestrude, Saarinen, Stone Bridge, or Lake Poinsett Access (Hammer's Pasture) parking lots and begin your cleanup
Bring the kids!
Foster the next generation of young lake caretakers by including your children on this fun hands-on experience.
The Lake Poinsett Association is a proud sponsor of SDGFP’s Adopt-A-Lake program.

Lake-Wide Rummage Sale Weekend
Spring clean your homes and cabins then sell those gathered treasures. June is rummage sale season at Lake Poinsett and Lake Albert. If you're not selling something, then drive around the lakes and find a great bargain.
