The Discovery Center has been coordinating a project to create an accurate record of lake levels since 2009.  Van Vliet Lake has been at relatively high levels the last few years.  This spring we are starting out with lower water so it will be interesting to see what happens this summer.

Slow-No-Wake Rules

 

The Town of Presque Isle has an ordinance that prohibits any motorboat from operating faster than slow-no-wake speed within 200 feet of any lake shoreline.  Click the link below to read the details.

Several years ago, the VVLA posted this map at our landing to give people a visual image of what that means on our lake.  Take a moment to look at the map and get a sense of where the 200 foot line is along the shoreline.

Code of Ordinances: Chapter 500, Subchapter 501 – Motorboats
