Watercraft Rules and Regulations
All watercraft being placed on the lake must be registered with the Association and display a current Indian Lake numbered sticker attached to the bow of the vessel on the starboard side. 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.
The Association maintains a gated and locked boat ramp. The boat ramp facilities are for the exclusive use of Members in good standing. The gate is secured by a combination lock. The combination is changed annually on April 1. Members are advised of the lock combination numbers upon payment of their annual maintenance assessment. The dissemination of the lock combination 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.
