If you are bringing your own vessel to the lake, be sure to check on the specific legal requirements. State registration, lake permit, and an inspection station visit are just some of the details to review.
Most lakes allow speed boats, but some do not. Be sure to follow the individual lake stipulations. Some of the small ramps are for non-motorized boats only. Do not try to load in your vessel on ramp not suited for it.
Aquatic hitchhikers are a real nuisance and an environmental problem. Make sure your motor and boat bottom are cleaned before traveling from one lake to the next. Many states require an inspection before launching and provide cleaning stations at the docks.
