DLA FiveStar Initiative
Lake Service Providers, Marine Dealers,
and Deer Lake Resorts/Camps
The DLA FiveStar Initiative promotes area lake service providers, local marine dealers, and Deer Lake resorts/camps that have voluntarily agreed to implement AIS and other safeguards intended to maintain and improve water quality. For lake service providers and marine dealers, FiveStar means they have agreed to implement additional safeguards to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS). For resorts/camps, it means in addition to AIS safeguards, they have agreed to safeguards regarding septic maintenance and inspection, storm-water run-off, and/or shoreline erosion mitigation.
In return for their stewardship of Deer Lake, DLA has agreed to recommend and promote participating DLA FiveStar businesses to Deer Lake community members, including property owners and guests, anglers, recreational boaters, and the surrounding community.
In order for our Initiative to work, it’s important that you and your guests patronize DLA FiveStar firms. FiveStar firms include area lake service providers, local marine dealers, and Deer Lake resorts/camps that have agreed to common sense AIS practices and other water quality safeguards in their practices. Some are even going above and beyond in order to win your business. Please consider moving your business to a DLA FiveStar service provider. If you’re reluctant to leave your current provider, and that provider is not on the DLA FiveStar list, ask them to join.
We are grateful and thankful for participation from our founding FiveStar service providers. Please click on the links below showing DLA FiveStar Lake Service Providers, Marine Dealers, and Resorts/Camps and including summary information about the services offered by each.
