Gilbert Lake Facts

Gilbert is one of the clearest lakes around
.  Yes, the sun on a boat wake is "diamonds on the water."
For the good of everyone, please clean off weeds and drain water from your boat before entering and after leaving the waters of Gilbert Lake. 
We all need to do that for the future of the lake and those who use it.
