The 'no wake' rule has been lifted!

UPDATED: JULY 13, 2018

ATTENTION All Indian Lake Boaters:

*NO WAKE Boating Rule is in Effect Until Further Notice*

On Tuesday, July 10th, we sent an important notice about the low water level of the lake. At that time, we stated it may be necessary to institute a temporary ban on towing (water skiing, tubing, etc.). Despite the fact there seems to be a bit of water coming over the waterfall – this will only maintain our current level; therefore, our usual Monday and Wednesday NO WAKE boating rule is in effect, EVERY DAY, until further notice. Water skiing or other towing operation of any kind will NOT be permitted.

The following cautionary guidelines remain while boating:

  • Stay as close to the buoys as possible, keeping to port (left) at all time.

  • Use extra caution around sand bars; you can easily get ‘hung up’ on areas north of Monkey Island, as well as north and south of Lenape Island.

  • Be cautious of the many tree stumps – given the depth of the lake at this point, boaters risk hitting their props; kayaks and paddle-boards should also stay clear of stumps as they may cause you to tip and fall.

  • The area south of Monkey Island is a designation no wake area and is one of the lowest parts of the lake – keep close to the channel buoys at all times.

Please continue to enjoy Indian Lake, but remember - under such very low water level conditions - safety is our primary concern.

To the attention of all those who enjoy power boating, tubing, skiing, kayaking and even paddle-boarding on Indian Lake.

As you are aware, the water level of our lake is lower than expected this time of year. The contributing factors have been addressed, and our ILCC trustees will continue to keep you informed. As Boat Trustee, I’d like to bring special attention to safety concerns and offer a few tips while boating and out on the water.

Use Caution While Boating:

  • Stay as close to the buoys as possible, keeping to port (left) at all time.

  • Use extra caution around sand bars; you can easily get ‘hung up’ on areas north of Monkey Island, as well as north and south of Lenape Island.

  • Be cautious of the many tree stumps – given the depth of the lake at this point, boaters risk hitting their props; kayaks and paddleboards should also stay clear of stumps as they may cause you to tip and fall.
