Welcome to Serene Lakes Property Association (SLPOA). Serene Lakes is a special place located in the historic Donner Summit area of the Sierra Nevada, Situated at 7,000 feet are two connected lakes - Serena and Dulzura that are surrounded by the Serene Lakes community. SLPOA is a voluntary association of cabin and lot owners. It represents the interests of its members to state and local government agencies, maintains the private beach and common areas, and organizes community activities.

The Placer County Superior Court has issued a written decision in the case of Gortner Trust v. Sierra Lakes County Water District, Case No. SCV-32158.  As most of you know, this case involved the contention of a property owner along the infamous “Strip” that she was entitled to ownership or exclusive use of that portion of the “Strip” in front of her properties by way of adverse possession or adverse use.  The trial court issued its final decision on June 6, 2016, finding for the Water District on all issues.  If you are interested in reading the case click here.

               The Decision means the Lake Management Plan adopted by the Water District is valid and there will be no changes in the use of the lake access points or management.  For more information about the District’s Lake Management Plan click here.
