Welcome to www.mySandyLake.com  ... the official Sandy Lake Improvement Association (SLIA) web site


We are happy to see the loons back again this year!  They now have 2 baby loons!  
Please be respectful of their presence on the lake when you are out boating. 
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing loons on our lake and listening to their soulful call at night when sitting by a lake campfire.
