Fish Lake Beach is now closed for the winter. People often have questions about procedures for accessing the property after October 15th. We hope the information below will answer most of those questions.
Will my key still open the gate? Your key will continue to open the internal gate attached to the gatehouse, but the two outer remote control gates (located at the entrances off of Route 12 and Volo Village Rd.) will also be in use. This is for the protection of everyone’s property.
How can I get a remote for these gates? You are welcome to come and check on your trailer, but you must stop at Fish Lake Trailer Sales to pick up a remote.
When can I get a remote? You are welcome to come during Trailer Sales Winter hours. These hours are Monday-Saturday from 9-3 and and Sundays 10-3. The gate opener must be returned to by 2:45 before Trailer Sales closes. Your Driver’s License will be taken as a deposit for the gate opener.
Can I spend the night? Anyone wishing to spend the night must call ahead and make prior arrangements. There are a limited number of gate openers, and if they are all in use, no additional campers may spend the night. We are closed for the season and limited resources are available.
Is there a time when I won’t be allowed access to the property? Fish Lake is closed to all campers from December 15th to March 1st. You can only access the property for emergency purposes with permission and a staff member present. You MUST call ahead because staff is not always available at this time of year. We do not plow the majority of roads in the campground which makes them impassable. If you attempt to use the unplowed roads and get stuck, you will need to use a towing company as we cannot pull you out. Your best bet is to stay on the main road and walk to your campsite.
Are there other things I should know? It is always best to call first if you have any questions. We do not plow the majority of roads in the campground which makes them impassable. If you attempt to use the unplowed roads and get stuck, you will need to use a towing company as we cannot pull you out. Your best bet is to stay on the main road and walk to your campsite. The Trailer Sales phone number is 847-546-4447 and Fish Lake’s is 847-546-2228. Trailer sales will be closed on Thanksgiving and between December 24, 2013 and January 1st, 2014. We will reopen January 2nd, 2014.
