  • Fire Season RestrictionsAs you know, Lake Forest Glen prohibits the use of charcoal grills, you may only use gas grills. But did you know there are other items you are prohibited from using in the Lake Tahoe Basin? North Tahoe Fire/Meeks Bay Fire have provided a list of these other items that are prohibited. Please click here to review these items.
  • Recreational Facility Cards:  The recreational facilities card for your unit will access the gate locks for the swimming pools/hot tub, and the tennis courts. There is not a code to punch in on the keypad, you must have your card to access the facilities. If you lose your card and need to get a replacement, contact the HOA office and let us know.  There will be a fee of $100 for replacing a lost card. We will issue a new card and deactivate the lost card. We have a limited number of “loaner” cards and may not have one available while you wait, so please be aware that there maybe a wait time to receive a replacement (this can take up to a few weeks).
