Membership Eligiblity

All Smallwood and contiguous area (Smallwood) homeowners are eligible for membership. If Smallwood residents desire to enjoy Association Facilities and access to the Lake, they are encouraged to purchase their own membership - they may not utilize another Smallwood resident's membership. Homeowners with multiple Smallwood houses are expected to purchase separate memberships for each house. A membership includes up to ten (10) members per household. Invited house guests are only permitted on Association property when accompanied by an adult member. Renters are not considered house guests. All members are expected to carry proof of membership plus government issued identification and present such when asked to do so by Association representatives.

Non-member Smallwood residents may not be accompanied by members on Association property including the Civic Park, Lodge, Beach, Lake and surrounding property. Doing so may result in such person's membership, including that of all household members, being revoked.

To obtain membership privileges for your renters:
  • STEP 1: Purchase a Landlord Membership
    A Landlord Membership includes Civic with Lake Privileges for one (1) set of renters and the homeowners.
    Homeowners who temporarily or permanently reside in a separate Smallwood property are expected to purchase their own separate membership.

  • STEP 2: For additional sets of renters, purchase Weekly Renters Beach Passes as needed, available on the Calendar. 
    Homeowners who rent out multiple Smallwood properties are expected to purchase a membership for each property.
