The Tenmile Lakes Association puts on several annual events - both fundraisers and community events. See below to find out more about all of the fun things we have in store for this year!

Earth Week

Tenmile Lakes Association

In lieu of our annual Earth Day clean up, where we all get together and clean up the lake... we're hosting a "social distancing" clean up instead. Please join us this week in helping to collect debris from the lake and pile it on to the barges on North and South Tenmile Lake.

The barges will be out from today (April 20) to April 26 (this Sunday). Please only collect lake debris - no appliances, furniture, or other items from properties on the lake (that will be handled during the Large Item Pick Up in August).

Thank you for helping us continue to keep our lake clean!

Wine & Cheese Lake Tour

TLA Wine & Cheese Lake Tour on a Boat

The Tenmile Lakes Association brings you a brand new event this year – the Wine & Cheese Lake Tour!


We'll take you on a 2–Hour Tour of South Tenmile Lake on a lovely pontoon boat (donated by the awesome Ringo's Marina). Your captain will tell you stories on the lake and a bit of history while you snack on delicious cheeses and wonderful wines. Tickets are extremely limited, get yours before they are gone!


Details: Saturday, May 18th **POSTPONED**


Tours begin at 3pm

Public Dock, Tenmile Lake, Lakeside


Independence Day Beach Party

TLA & the City of Lakeside Present a day on the beach and Fireworks in celebration of Independence Day!

It's a beach party at the lake! There'll be a snack shack with food, drinks, and ice cream, LIVE MUSIC, a face painter, games and more. We'll have fun on the beach all afternoon long and then fireworks over the lake!


Lakeside's fireworks over Tenmile Lake are one of the best fireworks on the entire Coast! You get three shows... one in the sky, one in the water (the reflection), and one for your ears (the echoes through the canyon). This is a FREE family event for all to enjoy. As a special treat, this year's show will be timed to music for the first time ever!


Details: Thursday, July 4th

Festivities begin at 4pm, Fireworks at 10pm

Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw, and a local historian who grew up right here in Lakeside!


This year's history dinner is sure to impress. More details about the speaker and meal choices coming soon! Save the date!
