Annual Dues Notices Are Out 

(Updated 10-01-17)

Fall is here and you know what that means!  Annual dues are on their way. Great news this year as we have lowered the dues from $160 to $150. These dues help pay for the upkeep our the RIA property, Dock, taxes, snowplowing, amongst other things. With all this, we hope the lowered rate will help.  

RIA is committing more resources to help maintain the trailer lot. Many of you have noted how full the lot is, with boats off trailers, or trailers that don't even move year over year.  To help combat this, we are changing our Lifetime Trailer Pass, to an Annual Pass for $50/year.  We believe that those who have used the lot as a place to park their trailers for years will take a second look if they have to pay $50/year.  We hope to evolve the trailer lot to a more active lot with better access for those who actively use it.  RIA will use the income gathered to hire professionals to come in and clean the lot up, cutting back the brush, which will help expand the perimeter and provide better parking. This will happen in November.  If your trailer is in the pen during the clean up, please note that your trailer might be moved as part of accessing the cutting areas.  

If you do not wish to pay for the Annual pass, please send back your stainless steel trailer plate with your dues.  We will remove it from your bill.  

The board and officers are excited for these changes, and hope these new updates will bring more value to your RIA experience.  

Thank you, 

RIA Board and Officers

Welcome to Rattlesnake Island

Rattlesnake Island is the 3rd largest island on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.  The resources on this website are meant for use by Rattlesnake Island Association Membership and Officers.

Association Overview

Today, the island is governed by an association of its members.

The Rattlesnake Island Association (“RIA”) was incorporated in the state of New Hampshire on May 12, 1969.

Its Articles of Incorporation were restated March 15, 1994.
All Rattlesnake Island property owners belong to the RIA. There are 186 individually owned lots on the perimeter of the island. There are two lots on the interior of the island’s northwest side that are privately owned. The remaining interior property on the northwest side is owed by the RIA. The interior property on the southeast side of the island is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust.
In addition to its interest in the island’s interior land, the RIA also owns a number of lots on the island’s perimeter:

Copeland’s Cove
Washington View
Mountain View
Major View
Raccoon Point
Pow Wow
Young’s Cove

The land owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust is accessible through one designated waterfront lot and dock on the southeast end of the island. This island access is limited to Trust members and their accompanied guests.
In addition to the interior northwest land and the 8 waterfront island lots, the RIA owns one lot on its neighboring Sleeper Island. This lot is used to bring power to Rattlesnake Island from the mainland.
Upon request, all members of the RIA are provided with keys to the launch ramp and trailer storage area and parking passes for the upper and lower parking lots.
