It is the homeowner’s responsibility to know where their land survey markers or land survey monuments are placed for their property lines. They were placed for use during surveys and for possible following surveys to come. Markers are typically durable and are often intended to be permanent. They can be as straightforward as a chisel mark or nail to as complex as stamped metal disks that are set into concrete or rock pillars. The two most common types of survey markers used in land surveying include vertical elevation markers and horizontal position markers. If you are unable to locate the land survey markers on your property you will need to have your property surveyed before erecting a fence on or near the property line (This is a State requirement.). In the United States it is a misdemeanor to intentionally remove or destroy permanent survey markers. Only licensed surveyors are permitted to place survey markers or monuments in Thurston County (letter on file).

Boating and Fishing Information
July 12, 2012 The SWL Board unanimously approved a prior understanding that only SWL residents and their guest(s) in attendance may use our private lakes. No gasoline motors are allowed on our lake. (small electric motors are still allowed) See RCWs for more rules and regulations.
You can access the lake from the clubhouse area or the small parklike common area on ThruLake between Vireo Court and Tanwax. We do not have a boat launch area/dock
Fishing in Sunwood Lake is for homeowners/renters and their guests. The lakes are not open to the general public. Homeowners/renter need to accompany their guests.
Fishing Requirements are controlled by The State of Washington and license for fishing is required in Sunwood Lakes. https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/
Washington fishing licenses are not required for youth age 14 and younger.
When fishing with a youngster, keep safety first. By law, children 12 and younger must wear a USCG–approved life jacket when under way in a boat or other vessel less than 19 feet in length, unless it is in a fully-enclosed area. For safety young children should also wear life jackets anywhere near the water.
A BIG THANK YOU to Nathanael Cheney and his helpers for the restoration, laying of bark and marking of the two trails (one at the end of Tern and Siskin and another at the end of Auklet and Egret). This was part of his completion of his Eagle Scout award for Boy Scouts of America. Thank you again…we really appreciate all of your hard work.
