The Chateaugay Lakes Association would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful to have such a beautiful place to live and enjoy. Whether you are here for the summer, year round, or just able to spend time on the lake for vacation; it really is a beautiful place with a rich history and hopefully a place many generations will be able to enjoy as we do.
Supporting Local Businesses and Artists
