What Exactly is ALA… And Why do they Manage Lake Arrowhead?

Are you one of those who keeps hearing all the locals use the term ALA?  It probably sounds something like this, “I have to pay my ALA dues,” or “don’t forget to bring the ALA card when we go to the beach.”  Remember that here in Lake Arrowhead we are a private Lake and all the homeowners in “Arrowhead Woods” like it that way.   (Click here to read my blog on Arrowhead Woods)

Below you will find info that I pulled directly from the ALA website: http://www.ala-ca.org/page/24073~502845/Welcome:

If you have any further questions, please call ALA and they will be happy to help.
