DLPOA Board Meeting, Thursday February 9, 6pm, Pinelow Camp

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.

I have pictures from 2004, 2005, 2006 2007 and 2008 boat parades also, and would be happy to send you a hi def version of any of these pictures by email. I did not take pictures of the 2009 parade and have only a very few pictures of the 2010 parade.

Board Meetings

Board meetings are the Second Thursday of most months except the summer ones and winter ones....  Everybody is welcome to come.  Generally there are cookies.  As of March 2008, meetings start at 6PM!!! As of March 2010, the meetings are back at the Pinelow Camp Conference Room.

See above for when the next board meetings will be.

Click here for a list of the current Officers and Committees of Dlpoa. We now have the Board Meeting notes online, in addition to the past newsletters.  Please go to the Newsletters page for more information.

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.

Comments on this site can be sent to demattia (at) acm.org .  Please start sending scanned pictures of the lake area, and suggestions about local businesses you have dealt with.
