The weather's getting nicer and things are beginning to come alive for the summer, once again.

We miss all of you that aren't able to be here! Stay well and hopefully, we'll see you soon.

From the office

20 May 2020

Lake Tyee members,
I hope this letter finds you happy and well!
I’m writing today with a few announcements from the Lake and some general information.
Due to COVID-19 and the impact it has had on all of our lives, the decision has been made to delay the AGM this year until Saturday July 18, 2020. Hopefully, the border will once again be open, and more lot owners will be able to attend.
This letter is a call for Board Member candidates. This year, we have 2 Board positions up for election. Attached to this email is a “Board Candidate Form” (also available at the office) for anyone interested in running. To be eligible you need to be a lot owner for a minimum of two years by the date of the Annual General Meeting and be a Member in good standing. Applications need to be submitted to the office no later than close of business Friday, June 19, 2020 to be considered.
Attending lot owner’s meetings (once we can hold them again), and/or becoming a Board member are opportunities to get involved, make adifference and help with shaping the direction of our beautiful park. If you have an interest in participating, we would love to hear from you.
General Information:
We are continuing to follow the guidance provided by Governor Inslee’s office for restrictions due to COVID-19. Based on that guidance our amenities are still closed and we do not have information as to when they may open. Lots are accessible, some comfort stations are open, and the lake is available to be used but pools, playgrounds, clubhouse, etc. remain closed. Skagit County is at phase 1 of the Safe Start Plan for the State of WA and not currently eligible for a variance to allow them to move to phase 2. Each
phase is required to last a minimum of 3 weeks. Our plans are to open amenities as the Safe Start Plan allows and as we can support their recommendations.
The number of people here at the lake at this time of year is far lower than would be the case on a normal year but with warmer weather, we are seeing an increase in owners and guests venturing up to the Lake. I would like to take this opportunity to review the policy for guests.
- A guest is anyone other than an Association member, 16 years or older.
- All guests must be registered with the Lake Tyee Office by a Lake Tyee member / owner.
- Only members in good standing may register a guest.
- Members may register guests online or in-person at the office.
- The authorized vehicle Guest Pass must be signed by member and visitor and visible on the dashboard of the vehicle.
- Family members and/or frequent guests may be registered for secondary access keys and issued a parking pass. These keys are only valid for the vehicle identified on the registration form.
-The lot owner/member assumes full responsibility and liability for the actions and behavior of their guests.
- A maximum of 10 people per lot (owners, guests and children under 16) are permitted to be accommodated overnight. Larger groups may be accommodated if pre-approved by the Manager or Assistant Manager.
-Members may host their visitors on their lot for 6 days per visit. The Manager or Assistant Manager may approve a second guest pass for an additional 6-day stay. Please, check with the office for availability.
- A visitor RV will be allowed for up to 3 days per month. The visitor RV must be located within the boundaries of your lot and have a valid Guest Pass in the window.
- 2 tents or 1 tent trailer are allowed on a lot. They must be within the boundaries of the lot and cannot remain on the lot for more than 3 days per month.
- Additional days for secondary accommodation on a lot may be permitted if pre-approved by Manager or Assistant Manager.
Your help in following the guest policy is appreciated and it also helps keep the park at it’s best for all to enjoy.
We have completed the new electrical at the Boom and the number of available sites has been reduced from 6 to 4. These are rental sites for your guests, they include power and water hookups but do not have sewer connections. Please contact the office for availability and prices.
Once again, boats may be stored in the designated storage areas at the lake. And last but not least, tarp season has officially ended. All tarps need to be removed (provided you are at the lake; we will not ask anyone to come here just to remove a tarp during COVID-19 times). Please remember that “blue” tarps are never allowed.

On Monday 18 May 2020, there will be a park wide power outage to allow the electricians to connect the Boom area and Ladner Lane areas to the new power. The outage will begin at 10:00 AM and is expected to be no longer than one hour.

Thank you


Just a few locals practicing social distancing;


You stay inside...I'll stay out here and we'll get along just fine.

A picnic for one...

Marion the marmot getting a bit of outdoor exercise, we'll call this a "plank"

This table is taken, move along and find your own...

Hanging out by myself.

Taking turns at the feeder

I'll eat my dinner over here...

Keeping it just to the family.

Social distancing is a great example of how important individual contributions are to a group effort.

Social distancing isn't always easy, but it's keeping us safe.

Stay healthy!

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.
