Welcome to the Lake Gaston Association

The Lake Gaston Association is a citizens' organization that actively advocates and promotes the interests of households and businesses who own property in the two states and five counties of Lake Gaston.

Each of the five counties surrounding Lake Gaston has four volunteer Director positions on the LGA Board, plus one at large position for a total of 25 Directors.

We are a volunteer, non-profit, nonpartisan, and nonsectarian organization, unified for greater influence with our federal, state, and local officials and agencies that have management authority on and around Lake Gaston NC & VA.

Lake Gaston Association promotes the interests of households and businesses who own property in the two states and five counties of Lake Gaston.

LGA membership is comprised of both households and businesses on and around Lake Gaston NC & VA; many of whom have permanent homes elsewhere, and own vacation property on the Lake. The Lake Gaston Association actively provides them with a voice in all issues and concerns that could affect their enjoyment of the Lake.

If you are not a member, but own property in the Lake Gaston area, or simply have an interest in preserving the many benefits the Lake provides, consider adding your voice to ours by joining today.

LGA Runs on Volunteerism

As you will note as you peruse the pages of this web site, the Lake Gaston Association is heavily involved in protecting and preserving our Lake Gaston Community on many fronts. The work involved in educating ourselves, keeping our members informed, and pursuing the resolution of issues is extensive.

With the exception of our part-time Executive Director, all this extensive work is performed by dedicated volunteers. The goal for the makeup of our five standing Committees – Lake Environment, Government Relations, Public Safety, Marketing and Membership, and Lake Clean-Up is to have volunteer members from each of our five counties represented on each of these Committees. In addition, each of our volunteer Directors is expected to serve on at least two of these committees.

Thanks to those who have renewed!  Reminder invoices have been emailed.   
Just a reminder the February/March issue will only go out by email.  If we don't have your email please get in touch with us.   

Lake Gaston Association is glad to offer discounts to individuals who belong to an HOA or POA that joins as a group.

HOA's / POA's joining as a group will receive a discounted general membership of $20 which represents a savings of $5 per property or lot within the subdivision. Individual property owner's who are already active LGA members, will receive a $5 refund.

To qualify for this group discount, all property owners (homes and lots) within the subdivision must join. Property owners who own multiple properties on Lake Gaston are not required to pay duplicate dues.

If your HOA / POA would like to save your property owners on their dues, and show support for the LGA, we ask that the Treasurer contact the LGA for additional information. We will coordinate with your HOA / POA and provide a list of current members to avoid duplicate payments.

The member dues are to be collected by the HOA / POA treasurer and submitted to the LGA as one payment. The list of property owners should accompany the payment, and should include appropriate contact information such as: name, lake address, lot #, and e-mail address. We would prefer a phone number as well. This information is kept confidential and only used for LGA communications.

The Lake Gaston Association represents property owners in the five counties of NC & VA that surround the Lake. The dedication and work of the LGA result in maintaining and enhancing the quality of recreational and residential enjoyment on Lake Gaston, and thereby protecting the Lake’s property values as well.

Property owners in the Lake area benefit from the efforts of the LGA in many ways, primarily in the lake-related areas of public and governmental affairs, lake environment, water quality, weed control, public safety, and public communication. The LGA becomes involved in any lake-related issue of concern to Lake Gaston property owners. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, and updated information on lake issues through email and the LGA website which also includes web links of interest. 

Among other things, the LGA also represents the lake property owners with the Division of Water Resources and various other agencies involved with water quality and the environment, fishing, safety, lake levels, etc. It has fought against inter-basin transfer of Lake Gaston’s water supply and continues its search for weed control funding.

Please join and support the efforts of this organization. The LGA welcomes you to their monthly membership meetings by the Board of Directors (there are five from each county) who volunteer their time and efforts on behalf of lake property owners. Bring your comments and suggestions… and they will be heard the first Wednesday of the month. Brochures, applications to join, and further information may be found at lake real estate agencies or the Lake Gaston Chamber of Commerce. You may also call LGA at (252) 586-6577, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or visit this website again.

For a single, “primary” voice on lake issues to Federal, State and local government agencies, the LGA is your choice. Won't you please join and be counted among the voice of thousands that support the work of the LGA? Even better….if you have some spare time in your week, won’t you consider serving your community? We invite you to share your special talents by serving on one of the LGA committees.
