Welcome to Chautauqua Lake!

Welcome to the Chautauqua Lake Association website!  We hope that you will find the information contained within our various tabs to be helpful and informative.

Formed by glacial retreats approximately 16,000 years ago, Chautauqua Lake has observed a lot of history and has evolved ecologically to be a very mature naturally functioning lake.  That’s where we come into the picture.  Her maturity means that she will always need maintenance assistance.  Although there is much that we can and should do to help her maintain herself, she will always need assistance with submerged plant maintenance and nutrient input control.  The Chautauqua Lake Association has actively promoted proactive nutrient control measures for years and operates the only in-lake plant and shoreline maintenance activity that occurs in regard to Chautauqua Lake.

As of July 2015, you can watch the sun set on Chautauqua Lake from where ever you are in the world! We’re proud to introduce our LIVE Lake Cam:
