Little Swan Lake Club

Welcome to the Little Swan Lake website. The lake is located 4 miles west of Avon, Illinois. Little Swan Lake is a private lake made up of members who either own or lease property and are represented by the Little Swan Lake Club Board who are elected by the members.
We welcome new people to our Committees. Check out the volunteer opportunites by clicking on: volunteers. If a member is interested in working on one of the committees, please contact the committee chair or any board member. Board Meetings are held the first Monday of the month at 7 PM.

Annual Meeting results: Bob Andersen, Alan Jonckheere, Russ Morgan, Duane Taflinger and Danny Mahr were all elected to the LSL Board. The Bylaw change was approved while the Siltation fee and the Maintenance fee were defeated. For those who did not attend you can read the Annual Meeting PowerPoint .

Swans spotted on the lake - February 3, 2017


  1. ■ Boats must be anchored and motor turned off
  2. ■ Boats must stay in the center of the no wake zone not in the traffic lanes
  3. ■ Swimming will only be allowed from 30 minutes before sunrise until 30 minutes after sunset. Note: if you are swimming within 100' of your own shoreline property there are no hour restrictions.
  4. ■ Swimmers must stay within 30’ of the boat
  5. ■ A responsible person, 18 years or older must stay in the boat
  6. ■ NO DIVING allowed
  7. Be sure to inform anyone in your boat of these rules. BE SMART - BE SAFE!
Rules will be strictly enforced with a minimum fine of $25 for the first offense and repeated offenses could lead to loss of lake privileges.


Tubing or Skiing - There is a new law which requires a flag flying at the highest part of your boat while pulling tubers or skiers or when they are in the water. While skiing or tubing, be sure to have a responsible spotter, the driver cannot be considered a spotter. Boat in a counter-clock-wise pattern. Children under 13 must wear life preservers. Lights must be used after dark and boats are restricted to a no-wake speed after dark..

Boat Ramp Parking – Please be sure boat trailers are parked at the ramp area rather that at the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is often reserved for other functions and the parking spaces are needed. One or two trailers can take up a lot of parking spots. We realize at times additional trailer parking could be used and we are considering options in the Long Range Planning Committee. Anyone interested in working on the project, please contact a Board Member.
