ABOUT FLAT TOP LAKE
The property, except for the Lots and any easements used in conjunction with the lots, belongs to the Association. The members in good standing are entitled, because of their membership privileges, to use the common areas. FTLA is a non-stock non-profit corporation comprised of members.
The Association owns approximately 2,200 acres of land situated near Huff’s Knob of Flat Top Mountain on the headwaters of Glade Creek. A lake of about 230 acres was constructed. The lake itself, as well as the rest of the Association property, is located just twelve miles South of Beckley, West Virginia, on U.S. Routes 19 and 21.
The central bathing beach was incorporated in the original construction and the beach area has been improved each year since that time. Many tons of sand have been placed both on the beach and in the water out to the five foot depth. The swimming area is marked with painted buoys thus providing safe and enjoyable swimming.
FLAT TOP LAKE DETAILS
Most of the members have boats, and the boating activity is increasing with each season. The interest in boating is evidenced by the varied types of boats and motors in use on the lake. In order to protect the life and safety of the members, a large, high powered safety patrol boat is employed both for patrol purposes and rescue work.
The Lake Superintendent has been instructed by the Board of Directors to enforce the rules and regulations of the Association Boating activity, fishing, and jet skis are all popular on the lake. Glade Springs golf course is within a 10 minute drive, or snow skiing and tubing is available at Winterplace Ski Resort, just minutes away.
