Three cabins have been remodeled and a fourth one is being remodeled as you read this. The ladies restroom is refurbished and the men's will start being remodeled about March. The center section with grills, picnic pavilions, plus mini-golf and basketball will be started April 15th. We also plan to begin work around May 15th on two new cabins with cable TV and larger facilities. I want to thank all members for their patience regarding mini-golf and basketball. The big problem was never money, as neither is that expensive, but rather where was the best location to fit it into our furure plans.
P.S. We would like to thank all Martin Lake members for helping make us Mississippi's #1 family recreational resort! Martin Lake has in the last 7 years put approximately 1 million dollars into new improvements and we're not done yet!

We have a Lost and Found Department if you have lost anything while using MLR, such as jewelry, clothes, eyeglasses, etc. Please call me. We also have a class ring found a year ago. To pick up an item just call us and describe the lost item and come down and pick it up.
MLR would like advanced notice on all parties of 10 or more guests. We will need a list of guest names and phone numbers for each one in your party. Anyone not on the list will not be allowed to enter MLR facilities. Some of our past parties have found it easier to pay for their guests in advance. This has helped with security to move everyone in as quickly as possible. Please give M&M advance notice.
MLR still has some RV's that havent been registered. Every member with an RV in storage is required to come to the office and reregister their RV and every 6 months thereafter. If not, it can be considered abandoned property and will be disposed of according to applicable Mississippi State laws.
