Welcome to the White Lake Citizens League
DNR BOAT LAUNCH CLOSING
The launch is now expected to be closed
from June 5, 2017 until September 5, 2017
The DNR announced on March 7, 2017 that they intend to CLOSE the Boat Launch on Duck Lake Road from MID-MAY to MID-AUGUST for "site improvements".
Below is the text of the announcement on the White Lake Township Parks and Recreation Facebook Page
White Lake boating access site to close from mid-May to mid-August for site improvements.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced today that the White Lake boating access site, located off of Duck Lake Road in Oakland County, temporarily will close from mid-May to mid-August for site improvements.
The DNR advises White Lake residents to plan ahead and launch their boats prior to the mid-May construction closure. From mid-March until the project begins, the DNR will supply a skid pier to assist residents with launching their boats.
The improvement project will include 17 additional parking spaces, a wider launch ramp, additional landscaping and improved vehicle circulation. The new site design will allow vehicles to both enter and exit off Duck Lake Road, reducing vehicle traffic for neighboring property owners.
For more information about the White Lake boating access site project, contact Bill Althoff at Highland Recreation Area at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248-889-3750
Extensive information about the coming changes is contained in the most recent WLCL e-newsletter.
