Holiday Harbor Dock

The Holiday Harbor courtesy dock is being upgraded to better accommodate lake activities. The current dock, installed in the late 90s, is showing signs of wear with issues like cracked aluminum frames and deteriorating decking. The replacement will not only address these concerns but also reconfigure the space to accommodate 20 boats, an increase from the current 12.

Lodge Project

The Sunset Lounge & Terrace is almost complete! The lawn and firepits are finished, and most of the outdoor furniture is expected to arrive later this month. Indoors, the dining room is now closed for phase 2 of the Lodge renovation. Dinner is being served on the new terrace and in the bar during this time. Once complete, the dining room will have a fresh new look that compliments the newly renovated bar. The 3rd and final phase — the lounge/dance floor area — is being constructed concurrently with phase 2. This area will also have all new finishes, new lounge furniture, and a beautiful new fireplace. Thank you for your patience during this exciting renovation.

Did You Know?

The Davis Stirling Act, which governs all homeowner associations, requires that the Canyon Lake POA maintain a reserve study and healthy reserve funds. The Canyon Lake POA's boards have done a great job of this in recent years, and the money for many of these projects is already in the bank. The Davis Stirling Act also requires the Canyon Lake POA to maintain all of the common area amenities. This is one of the Canyon Lake POA's primary obligations. All of this helps maintain healthy property values here in Canyon Lake and helps modernize our 55-year-old community.

Canyon Lake Camera Program

The Security Advisory Committee, Riverside County Sheriff's Department, and City of Canyon Lake have collaborated to create the Canyon Lake Camera Program.

This program is for Canyon Lake POA members, and members must log in to the website to sign up. Alternatively, email [email protected] to sign up. If emailing, please include your name, address, and tract-lot number.

Lake Emergency Markers

Have you ever noticed the large letter signs that can be seen on the lake at several of the beaches and parks around the community? These letter signs are actually Emergency Locations Markers (ELMs) with latitude and longitude coordinates attached to them. The letters go from A to O. Residents who have an emergency on the lake can refer to the letter when they call 9-1-1. The Canyon Lake Fire Department references these letters so they can determine your location and provide assistance quicker. We recommend that all boaters have a copy of the Emergency Location Markers Map, which includes the physical address of each letter in the event that dispatch requests the address.
