deteriorating Lake Dubonnet boating access siteThe Lake Dubonnet boating access site located in Green Lake Township in Grand Traverse County, which provides lake access at the Lake Dubonnet State Forest Campground, will temporarily close beginning Monday, Aug. 13, for boat ramp replacement.

The site improvement project will include the replacement of the existing deteriorated ramp with a new ramp measuring 18 feet wide by 60 feet long. Construction is expected to last two weeks, with a tentative reopening date of Aug. 24.

“This upgrade to the Lake Dubonnet boat launch is much needed at this time,” said Chris Stark, supervisor of Interlochen State Park. “The current concrete ramp planks have started to deteriorate. The ramp replacement will create safe ingress and egress of boat traffic into Lake Dubonnet.” 

It is recommended that those planning to visit Lake Dubonnet boating access site check for any anticipated changes to the reopening date. Additional information on closures and trail detours in DNR facilities, including state trails, boat launches, parks and campgrounds, also are listed on this page.

This project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund. The restricted fund, which is derived from boat registration fees and the Michigan marine fuel tax, helps fund the construction, operation and maintenance of public recreational boating facilities.
