LITTLE ROCK LAKE ASSOCIATION
Vision: To Restore and Maintain the Health of Little Rock Lake
Little Rock Lake Residents, from time to time we experience some catastrophic weather conditions on the lake and surrounding areas that can destroy and cause loss of personal properties of lake residents. On behalf of the Little Rock Lake Association we ask Little Rock Lake Residents and our other community members that utilize the resource of Little Rock Lake to please not set any ‘lost & found’ dock panels or properties that may wash upon a shoreline by means of weather related incidents on the street curb for random pick up by just anyone driving by. Rather, please help those who may have lost lake personal property get back their items and promote a friendly neighborhood lake community of residents and water recreation participants.

Little Rock Lake derived its name from the southern two-thirds of Watab Township which has many outcrops of granite and syenite, continuing from the much-quarried area in Sauk Rapids and East St. Cloud. At each side of the river road, in the vicinity of the Watab railway station, small hills and knobs of these rocks rise about 40 feet above the road and 75 to 90 feet above the river. One of these hills of rough, bald rock, called by Henry R. Schoolcraft “The Peace Rock”, rises directly from the river’s edge about half-mile south from the mouth of Little Rock Creek, which, with its Little Rock Lake, was thence so named. It is a translation of the Ojibwe name, signifying, as more elaborately stated by Rev. Joseph A. Gilfillan, “where the little rocky hills project out every once in a while, here and there.” (Upham, 2001).
