Sept. 20, 2019


The boating access site, located in Indian Lake State Park in Schoolcraft County, will close Monday, Sept. 23 through Oct. 10 for a site improvement project.

Improvements include the complete replacement of the 36-foot-wide launch ramp and continued dredging of the channel that began in February 2018.

The DNR encourages boaters to use the alternative boating access site, located in Palms Book State Park, which provides access to the west side of Indian Lake.

The renovation project is funded through the State of Michigan Waterways Improvement Fund, a restricted fund derived from boating registration fees and Michigan marine fuel tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of public recreational boating facilities.
