There are probably a million Deer Lakes in this country. We are located in the State of Washington, about 30 miles North of Spokane, Washington on US 395. (See Maps). Our lake is a litle over a mile in diameter, and somewhat shaped like a frying pan, with the handle being the inlet for the lake. There are about 800 houses on this lake, with about half of those homeowners being members of DLPOA.
If you would like to join DLPOA ($20/year) please contact one of the officers of the organization. You will get the newsletter, and a vote in the elections. Maybe you can even serve some time on the Board of Directors!
You can write us at DLPOA, PO Box 250, Loon Lake, Wa 99148.
Our newsletter person can be reached at KenRingDeerLake(at)gmail.com.
Or, you can email a few of the officers. You will have to use your Amiche to contact the rest.
You can contact your humble webmaster at demattia(at)acm.org.
(You of course all know that you have to substitute the '@' for '(at)', this format is just a spam preventor.)

I am trying to get a complete archive of the old newsletters. I now have most of the newsletters in the past archives . If you have old Deer Lake photos, remberances, oral histories, whatever, I would like to add them to our site. Please contact me and I can scan in whatever you have.
The plan for this site is to have sections on Dlpoa Information, maps, weather, local media, contributed pictures of the lake area, and a classified section that will let us know just where to find somebody to fix our faucets or build us a shed.
Water Quality Report is a 2005 report produced by the Spokane Tribal Labs on the water quality in Deer Lake and vicinity. It is rather technical, and does provide some historical comparitions.
