The HLPOA buoys are generally put into the lake in early June, subject to the water levels being able to accommodate placement in close enough proximity to the shoals. The shoals on Horseshoe Lake are not always visible to boaters and depending on water levels may be just below the surface.
The buoys are located in two places on Horseshoe Lake:
The buoys are placed as a courtesy to alert boaters to the dangers the shoals present . The HLPOA assumes no legal responsibility and boaters are encouraged to use caution when near these shoals. It is important to remember that although the buoys are generally checked weekly, inclement weather and/or falling water levels could move them or expose additional rocks. Therefore boaters need to use caution and their own judgement as to where they travel on Horseshoe Lake.
The buoys are generally removed at the end of the boating season in October.
Should you observe a buoy that has broken free, please retrieve it and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for it to be picked up and put back in place.
