Boat racks are located on common ground in various places along the shorelines of the East and West Lakes.

- East Lake as 21 racks
- Total Spaces Available: 387
Each rack holds an average of four boats. These racks are intended to store small boats (under 350 lbs.) such as canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, and sailboats.
Adding Boat Launchers
Boat launchers may be installed on boat racks by LPOA Personnel ONLY. New installation is $350. If one exists, we will refurbish it and reinstall for $250. Boat racks and boat launchers are owned by the LPOA and leased to LPOA members. Boat racks and boat launchers are not titled with any home in Lakewood and are not owned by any one member.
Please call Sherry McNamara at the Lakewood Property Owners Association office at (816) 373-4326, and she can check on availability. A Boat Rack Lease Agreement must be signed, along with an annual fee of $58.00 before a boat can be placed on a boat rack.
Boat Storage Lot
Lakewood manages a private Storage Lot on a property behind the East Lake Dam. Residents can rent space in the storage lot for parking boats on trailers, vehicles, or other private property. Contact the office to find out more about annual pricing and availability to rent this storage space. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Contact Us.
