Fun and Interesting Facts/

Estimates from Summer 2019

Under the watchful eye of Fred K, the Official Ice Out Clock was hanging on to what was probably the last chunk of ice anywhere in the lakes or the channel. As shown in this photo, the clock fell through and stopped at exactly 3:58 and 47 seconds PM on April 1st. 

Congratulations to our three prize winners:
Jim P who guessed April 1 at 3:10 PM He wins $352.50
Emily G who guessed April 1 at 12:27 PM.  She wins a Trailside certificate for $50
John N who guessed April 2 at 1:00 PM He wins a Sugarloaf certificate for $25

Thank you to Mike & Susan B who coordinated the event. 
Thank you as well to all participants who helped to raise, a much needed, $352.50 for the MVA’s Water Quality and Weed Control Fund.

  2020 Special Order T-Shirt!

                                               ORDERS DUE BY July 26th


Proceeds will go to support Water Quality Fund

Enjoy the Adirondacks, the community and the lakes.

One’s desire for peace, quiet and solitude is no more or no less important than another’s desire to have fun on the lakes. Being respectful of each other’s desires and finding compromise is part of what makes our little corner of the world so special.

If you’re a boater, and especially the user of a personal watercraft, be mindful of those around you, including those along the shoreline. For all boaters, remember there’s a 5 MPH speed limit within 300 feet of any shoreline in the Town of Belmont. If you rent your property to others, please be sure to let your renters know about these considerations.


Please remember to renew your Mountain View Association Membership.

We need your ongoing support to keep Mountain View Lake 

& Indian Lake beautiful!

Our third annual 5k Fun Run/Walk was a great success!  We had  runners & walkers of all ages proudly wearing their new blue t-shirts for the event.. The weather was perfect!  We started at Belly's Restaurant at 9am, turned around on Wolf Pond Road, and made it back to the finish line at Belly's.  At the finish line, runners and walkers caught their breath, had some water, and took a little time to chat with their friends. Later in the day, many participants, their families, & neighbors got together for a delicious meal and a good time at the Annual Pot Luck Dinner. Beef on Wick was served along with delicious appetizers, salads, and desserts. More pictures of these fun events to be posted in the near future. If you missed it, join us for more fun next summer season!
