Lake Barcroft has numerous clubs and other organizations of special interests.

Lake Barcroft Boat Sharing Program: This new program facilitates the borrowing of small boats among neighbors. With 21 boats available and 56 participating households, we have plenty of room for growth. The program is FREE and you don’t need to own a boat to participate. You simply can go to the website (click the link above) and sign up by clicking the “Sign Member Agreement” button at the bottom of the webpage. This program makes a variety of different boats available for use on the lake, such as canoes, kayaks, youth kayaks, paddleboards and jon boats.  The program allows participants to host friends and family and try out different boating options.
