Lake Beulah Protective & Improvement Association

About the LBPIA


Lake Beulah Protective and Improvement Association (LBPIA) is a member-based organization dedicated to preserving the quality of Lake Beulah’s natural resources and sustaining its inviting environment. LBPIA is dependent on annual dues from its members for its funding. All who use and enjoy the lake are welcome as members.

Begun in 1894 as a collective effort to manage lake issues, the LBPIA has grown into an effective organization seeking to assure that the pristine quality of the lake remains for future generations.


Mission Statement

The Lake Beulah Protective and Improvement Association is dedicated to preserving the natural resources of Lake Beulah and to maintaining an inviting environment for all who use the lake.

What We Do

  • Serve as a voice in matters affecting the health and welfare of the lake.

  • Assist in monitoring water quality, fish stocking, educational programs for youth and users of the lake, and legal challenges of potential actions detrimental to the lake health.

  • Inform the membership of environmental issues and other matters regarding Lake Beulah.

  • Participate in efforts by local, county and state governmental units to develop and enforce meaningful laws and regulations.

  • Cooperate with other entities and organizations that have objectives beneficial to the lake.

  • Serve as a watch dog on developments on the lake with respect to building codes, zoning ordinances, pier regulations, water safety, and other matters.


An elected Board of Directors voluntarily represent LBPIA members and their interests and concerns. Area Chairpersons serve as the primary contacts to the Association. Biannual open meetings are held in the Spring and Fall every year. Annual membership dues and donations provide the financial resources for LBPIA to carry out its mission. These resources are used for monitoring water quality and invasive species, fish stocking, construction on or around the lake, pier regulations and education. Occasionally, dues and donations fund legal challenges to actions that threaten lake quality.

Other Donations


The Wisconsin DNR has given approval to stock Smallmouth Bass in Lake Beulah. Since Smallmouth Bass are not present in Beulah, it will take three years of stocking to establish a breeding population. The Triangle Sportsmen’s Club and LBPIA have each budgeted $1,000 per year for three years to start the project. Individuals and organizations interested in supporting the project are encouraged to send donations to LBPIA, P.O. Box 153, East Troy, Wisconsin.
