Welcome to Pokegama Lake Association

Where quality lake living begins


Clean Water. Environmental Education. Strong Community.

Upcoming Projects:

Pokegama Lake has experienced significant algal blooms over the past two years.  In response, the Pokegama Lake Association (PLA) is partnering with Lake Restoration, Inc. to offer individual property owners the opportunity for chemical week and muck control for the 2023 season.  This is designed to be an annual treatment program and will only be available if 15 or more total lakeshore owners participate in any given year.

The DNR will allow chemical treatment of a portion (approximately half) of the individual lake frontage.  The cost of the treatment will be $600 which includes two successive chemical treatments and a $40 DNR permit fee.

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please complete the attached sign-up form.  The form must be received by the Pokegama Lake Association no later than February 28th, 2023.  Send to: Pokegama Lake Assocation, 12965 Lake Line Road, Pine City, MN  55063.

A representative from Lake Restoration, Inc. will be present at the next PLA meeting to answer any questions you may have about the program.  The meeting will be held on February 18th, at 9:00 a.m. at the PLA building (address above).  If you are unable to attend this meeting, but have questions regarding this program, please contact Lake Restoration Service Coordinator, Sue Belille at 763-428-9777 x116 or

If you are not currently a member of the Pokegama Lake Association, you can sign up by completing the membership form and returning it to our address with the $40 fee or pay below via paypal.


Please note that, separately, the PLA will be performing chemical treatment of Curly leaf pondweed and Eurasian milfoil in 2023 in specified areas of the lake.  Your participation in the individual treatment program will be coordinated with the PLA's treatment program to ensure that lake management is in compliance with DNR regulations regarding the total area of the lake which can be treated in a single year.
