Town Rules

Boats are asked to approach and depart at moderate speeds. Maine state law enforces a safety zone within 200 feet of shore. From the Town of Raymond web site:

“This safety zone is in effect near ALL shorelines, even around points, islands, coves, and on rivers. This law exists for two primary reasons:

Safety. The zone 200' from shore is the area where swimmers and small boats are most likely to be present and where a boater operating at high speed might not see them. (But there may be swimmers anywhere in the lake at times, so please do keep a careful watch.)

The Environment. The 200' zone helps reduce the environmental impact of boat waves, reducing erosion and protecting the delicate shoreline habitat of species like nesting loons."

Regulations

Insurance regulations:  Swim at your own risk. No lifeguard on duty.
Environmental regulation: No bathrooms on the beach. When someone has to go to the bathroom, boaters have to return home.
Visits should be of a reasonable length less than 4 hours.
Dogs are allowed only if owners clean up after them and keep them away from bird nests on and around the beach.

We look forward to another summer of access by permission to this beautiful secluded and supervised beach.
