Boats Not Allowed in Swim Area
Posted on Jul 15th, 2013
We have had several reports of boats motoring into the swim area to pick up "friends" from the swim platform. This is against the law and a very dangerous situation. Parents, if your children or young adults are allowed to drive your boats, PLEASE remind them to stay out of the swim area. We will be monitoring the situation and reporting violators to proper the authorities. Two children lost there lives in a boating accident last week on Sylvan Lake. We don't want any accidents at the KHA beach.
 
Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach!
Posted on Apr 15th, 2013

If you see someone with their dog on the beach. Please remind them it is against the rules. They are the ones at fault and the need to be reminded of this.
