Welcome to The
Foss Lake Association

 
 

    The Foss Lake Association and it's members are dedicated to the improvement of Foss State Park and surrounding areas.  Numerous projects are always on the agenda and in planning stages.  We are always open to suggestions and volunteer assistance.  We all must work together to maintain this beautiful lake and provide an escape for everyone.  The Foss Lake Association sponsors several events yearly.   One of our biggest events is Christmas In July held each year on a weekend following the week of the Fourth of July.  Christmas In July is an event to honor our veterans. A large percentage of our gate collections go to The Veterans Center of Clinton.  This event has hundreds of vendors scheduled with several food vendors stationed along the main road.  Friday evenings include a popular band and Saturday evening we have one of the largest fireworks display around.  This year we are bringing back the lighted boat parade.  We invite everyone to attend this free event.  Funds for this event are supported by your donations at the gate and also our local sponsors. 
     Halloween In The Park is another event that the Lake Association is involved in. The event is scheduled for the weekend of Halloween. There is a haunted egg hunt, trick or treating and a Haunted Trail in the evening. Campers and cabins are decorated and awarded a free weekend of camping for first place. Entrance for the haunted trail are a donation of canned goods and the Association matches the amount. Products are then donated to the Clinton Halfway House.
