LDA Mission Statement

To promote the protection and enhancement of Detroit Lake


The LDA web site is a resource for sharing of information for Lake Detroiters Association members and provides compelling reasons for non-members to join. This web site is also a communication tool providing a conduit for information exchange with the greater lakes area community in support of our common mission. Most would agree that the life style enjoyed by homeowners and residents of the Detroit Lakes area depends upon “the protection and enhancement of Detroit Lake”.

The success  in accomplishing that goes hand in hand with the extent and strength of our LDA membership!  At present, over 50% of property owners on Detroit Lake belong to Lake Detroiters. The LDA Board of Directors is committed to increasing this number closer to 100%.

If you are a current LDA member, thank you for your support. If you are not a member we ask that you join us to support this mission. JOIN NOW 

LDA Mission Statement

“To promote the protection and enhancement of Detroit Lake”

Lake Detroiters Association (LDA) represents members who own properties on or near Lakes Detroit and Curfman (Deadshot Bay).  The association works as a constructive and collaborative advocate, through its members, and with other organizations and government agencies, to accomplish its mission.

LDA members understand the lake is a public asset which has been and will continue to be enjoyed by a diverse population for a wide variety of purposes.  These lake users are joined in common interest and concern for continuing to maintain the lake's ability to serve all these purposes. 

More specifically, LDA cares for the lake by advocating for reasonable lake protection, regulations, enhancing safety, monitoring of lake characteristics, implementing upstream measures to protect and enhance water quality, avoiding introdution of invasive species, and providing education to our members and the larger community about the lake and Lake Detroiters.
