Watercraft Rules and Regulations
All watercraft being placed on the lake must be registered with the Association. Watercraft registration is available to all Members in good standing. Watercraft registration is not available to anyone that is not a Member, and the use of the lake by unregistered watercraft is prohibited. Association registration of the watercraft requires that the watercraft be titled in the member’s name. There are no boating privileges for unregistered boats.
A major change for the upcoming season is a new gate system which is tentatively scheduled to be installed by late March. The goal of the new gate system is to provide more security to the lake for LSA members. The new gate will feature an electrically-operated opening system and a keypad which will receive a 6-digit code. Before receiving their personal gate code, LSA members must register their state-registered watercraft with the LSA and have their 2023 maintenance fee paid (the code will be provided by the LSA, not Acacia).
Members can register their watercraft with the LSA here: Watercraft Registration

This new system will monitor the use of each code and will provide video surveillance of the use of the code system and boat ramp. Any code that is used to bring a non-registered watercraft onto the lake will become an invalid code and the member must then make an individual appointment to put in or take out their watercraft. Members may also lose use of the boat ramp altogether upon repeated offenses.
The boat ramp facilities are for the exclusive use of Members in good standing. The dissemination of the gate code to anyone other than a Member in good standing is prohibited.
All watercraft operations must adhere to the State of Michigan Boating Laws including, but not limited to:
A.) All watercraft traffic must at all times proceed in counter-clockwise fashion around the lake.
B.) All watercraft must stay a minimum distance of 100 feet from all other boats and other objects.
C.) A spotter must be present on any watercraft that in any fashion has a person in tow.
Indian Lake restricts high speed boating, in any form, to the hours of 11:00 A.M. to 8:30 P.M. At all other times “no wake” speed limits apply.
Help protect Indian Lake and stop the spread of invasive aquatic species by cleaning all boats and trailers before placing them in the water. IT’S THE LAW! Violation is a state civil infraction and subject to fines.
