The Outlot


The Outlot is the central gathering place for Hermits Lake Association picnics, meetings and other community events. It features many amenities, including a large shelter, grass volleyball court and beach area. The outlot is open to HLHA members, and a key for the gate can be obtained through the HLHA board.


  The rules for the outlot are:

  - For use by HLHA members only.

  - Adult supervision is required at all times.

  - Homeowners are responsible for the actions of their guests.

  - Swim at your own risk.

  - No campfires.

  - No climbing of the fences that surround the outlot.

  - The outlot is closed from dusk to dawn everyday.


The HLHA takes great pride in caring for and preserving this wonderful recreational area for residents. We are always looking for volunteers to help with mowing the lawn, maintaining the picnic area and other general repairs. If you would like to help with any of the above, please contact a member of the board.
