Why do I have to purchase a personal equipment permit to bring my own?

  • Your equipment is required to meet specific standards in order to be utilized on the lake and takes staff time to inspect and approve.  It also requires a “dip” to ensure we are not cross contaminating our lake with invasive species from other waterways. It requires staff time and attention and therefore has a nominal fee.
