Construction of new homes continues yearly. There is also a full-service camp ground for those property owners who have not yet built, but who want to enjoy the Lake and its activates from their camper trailer or mobile home. The actual Little Swan Lake membership only costs $100 per year, for which the organization stocks the lake with fish, maintains the surface area of the inner roads and provides snow removal in the winter. The Lake also sponsors several free social gatherings, with food, at its Clubhouse located at the east end of the lake.
