Springtime is so great at the lake. Trees and bushes are leafing out, the animals are active again and the weather is just perfect.

Lake owners!  Larry and Kim Karmil here; we have stepped up to the plate to coordinate and plan activities again here at the lake.  After 2+ years of isolation for us all, we are finally able to gather and celebrate!  To kick off the summer season we are planning a few Memorial Day Weekend activities on Sunday, May 29th to include:
              Horseshoe Tournament
              Cornhole Tournament
              50/50 Raffle
              and for the kids:  “Candy Bingo”
Please see attached flyer for details.
We would also like to make and sell popcorn, hot dogs, chips and sodas during these events.  However, we are still going to need a few volunteers to make all this happen.  Please contact me via email or phone if you would be willing to donate a few hours between 10am and 3pm on Sunday.  We need volunteers for the following:
              Set up/take down tables and chairs in the clubhouse for Bingo; help run the Bingo event
              Kitchen help for cooking hotdogs, popping popcorn, selling food, collecting cash, etc.  Kitchen cleanup.
              50/50 Raffle ticket selling
Can you help us out by lending us some Cornhole board/bags for the day (we need 4 total); help run the tournament
Contact:  Larry Karmil:  limrak@comcast.net  360-360-1099
Kim and I have another commitment during the 4th of July weekend and will not be at Tyee, so if anyone would like to spearhead some fun activities surrounding that holiday weekend, please step up!  Meanwhile, we will have plenty of time to plan and coordinate a broader range of activities for the Labor Day weekend.
Thanks in advance for your help; we’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s faces at the Lake again!

Events at the Lake for the holidays are decided on, organized, implemented, and run by the social committee. Unfortunately, the social committee doesn’t currently have the volunteers to do this.

For the last couple of years Covid has prevented us from having these types of events but that’s not the case this year. We had an Easter event and we had plans for Memorial Day however, the volunteer heading up the Memorial Day events isn’t able to continue.

The last Memorial Day events held included a fishing derby, horseshoe tournament, billiards tournament, duck race and food at the BBQ shack. The day was a blast. We would love to have something similar this year if we can find the people to help put it together. New events and ideas are always welcome.

We’re looking for volunteers to run individual activities, helpers for each of those activities and also social committee volunteers to help with planning and implementing activities for the rest of the year.

The office is happy to help with planning, ordering/picking up supplies and materials, sending out notices, collecting donations or entry fees, etc. We just don’t have the staff to run the events (we work on those days).

We will hold whatever events we can based on the volunteers we get, in time to organize the event.

If you are interested in helping / volunteering, please contact the office at 360-853-7020 or stop in during business hours.

Where is Lake Tyee?

Lake Tyee is located approximately 2 hours north of Seattle and approximately 1 1/2 hours south of Vancouver BC.


From Washington I-5, take the Burlington exit and go east on State Highway 20 for approximately 21 miles. Turn left onto Baker Lake Highway and travel north for approximately 7 miles. Turn right onto Burpee Hill Road (you will see a large "Lake Tyee" sign at this intersection). The Lake Tyee community is on both sides of the road after the turn. The sales office is located on the left side of the road just before you get to the main entrance.
