Boat Launch on the Lake

  • Please help us keep our lake free of invasive aquatic plant life. Clean your boat before you float! Remove all plant fragments from boats, trailers, bait buckets, and anchors. Be sure your boat is free of any invasive aquatic plant species before launching. Even a small dried up fragment of some plants can trigger an aquatic invasion.
