A magical place, the Lake Caroline community welcomes you to a lifestyle where family is celebrated, and good neighbors become lifelong friends. Lake Caroline is a 3,000-acre planned community with resort style amenities. Residents enjoy walking in an 11-acre park, boating and fishing on the second largest, private lake in Mississippi, and golfing on a championship golf course. And because the land was developed with wildlife in mind, Lake Caroline is home to pelicans, herons, bald eagles, and deer, making it a haven for nature lovers.

Bridge Inspection
Garver, an engineering, planning, architectural, and environmental services company, has inspected the bridge and reports that it is in good condition. However, preventative maintenance was recommended to prevent further erosion to the steel piles. This work will be scheduled.
County Designates Public Streets
The county has approved designating the following streets as public streets: Harwood Court, Sumter Court, Charleston Lane, Charleston Circle. There are additional streets within Lake Caroline, however, that should be classified as public streets, but are not listed as such on county records. Our business manager is working with supervisor, Karl Banks, and the county to correct the record. 
 
Detour Due to Bridge Work
 Bridge Water Drive near the spillway will be closed due to bridge work from Friday, January 27 to Thursday, February 3. Heavy machinery will hang the bridge arches, and the bridge will be closed to all traffic during the lift. Please use Bellevue Drive and Bridgewater Drive (Water tower intersection). We will send a news blast when the road is reopened. 
 
Lake Dredging Update
The dredging project will begin in fall 2022. Originally scheduled to begin this winter, the project was moved due to permit process delays, low water levels impacted by drought after the lake was dropped while replacing a culvert, and also a desire to not impact recreation on the lake.

Join our Photo Contest. Three of the submissions are displayed above. Send your photos and they may be selected for display on our website in 2022. Photographers will be credited. Horizontal photos have the best chance to be selected for the static pages, which are the rotating photos that you see every time you visit the site. If you send 4 x 6 photos they cannot be used on the static pages, but they may be selected for use with a News Notes article or a Photo Album on the website. Be sure to send photos with high resolution as only photos that can be enlarged and still look sharp can be selected for static pages. 
 
Ideas for subject matter include:
  • Having fun - boating, fishing, etc. Need a good pic of members having fun. 
  • A beautiful sunny day 
  • Fourth of July Activities or other events
  • Sunsets 
  • Wildlife (have a few).
