Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Who actually owns the lake?
Is it privately owned, or owned by a HOA, a utility, or municipality?
And the easement doesn't specifically give you rights to access the lake?
Ok, then while it is odd, if the lake is privately owned, then your easement only allows you to make a path down to the water, but not actually enter the lake or use their private property..
The easement is strictly controlled by the written wording in it. If it doesn't' give you rights to the lake, you don't have any.
So you can build a nice path down to the water's edge to look at it if you want to, but can't actually use the lake unless you work something out with the country club..
