Boats will be limited to canoes, kayaks, rowboats, skiffs, or small boats with up to a 10-horsepower motor that can be hand-carried. With this change in use, public vehicles, including motorcycles, will no longer be permitted to drive to the water's edge to launch boats. Vehicle access will only be allowed up to 100-200 feet from the lake at varying water levels. Other authorized recreation activities will not be affected.
This change in use will serve to enhance public safety and water quality, while providing for recreation and protection of cultural and natural resources in this area.
