Boat Launch and Removal to Open for Birch Lake Homeowners


The launch site that was developed to provide access for the weed harvester will be opened for homeowners for a spring launch and fall take out.

The spring date has been set to coincide with the lake cleanup day, Saturday May 7, 2016.  Lake cleanup will take place from 9:00 AM until noon.  The boat access will be opened from noon until 3:00 PM. 

Homeowners are welcome to launch their boat.  The access is level and has concrete into the water.  No more risk of getting stuck!

Owners are reminded to observe the DNR week control rules.  There will be an inspector present.

Boaters are required to complete three main actions before leaving the access or riparian property.

1.     Clean off the boat by removing all plants, mud, debris and organisms from the exterior and interior of the boat (including angling equipment and the anchor).

2.     Drain all water from the boat and other water related equipment, including bait water.

3.     Pull the plug (it must remain out during transport)

Please make sure that your boat is clean and dry to help ensure that no invasive species are introduced into the lake.  Also make sure you pull the plug before you transport the boat. 

The boat launch is located on South Birch Lake Blvd. near the Otter Lake Rd. intersection.
