The Harper Lake Association
We are dedicated to maintaining and preserving the lake's ecosystems, keeping the lake clean and usable, and enjoying each other's company.
One way we accomplish this is by abiding by safe and friendly ground rules for the use of the lake.
Our intent is to use the site for communication among our members, many of whom spend part of the year in other venues, and to provide visitors to the lake with background information about the lake and a guide to courteous use of the lake so that the boaters, fisherman, and residents can share the lake in harmony.
WARNING - BEARS
Several lake residents have been visited by bears recently. They have broken into sheds, ripped up bird feeders, knocked down suet feeders and generally made a nuisance of themselves. It would be a good idea to remove all tempting food sources from your property. If you see a bear, or evidence of one, near your house, please report it to the DNR.
DO NOT APPROACH THE BEAR
Getting closer for a better picture is NOT a good idea.
Before you burn that trash or start that friendly bonfire,
CHECK ABOUT BURN CONDITIONS

One of the treasures of the Harper Lake area is our small herd of white deer. These white and piebald deer are very special to us and have graced our area for several years. The alpha doe has had twins in the last two years. Most years at least one is white or piebald. In 2007, one of the fawns was nearly all white, while the other was "standard" tan. While many of us hunt and are very grateful for the opportunity to enjoy venison, we consider these deer to be special and protected. If you come to hunt our area, please respect these deer and do not harvest them.
