Boating Cautions

As on any large lake, afternoon winds can come up quickly and pose a danger to small boats not designed for whitecaps or choppy water. At Eagle Lake calm water can quickly turn to whitecaps without warning.

Low water has created hazards, some hidden just below the surface, especially in the shallow northern two sections of Eagle Lake. Some of the hazards are marked with buoys, but others are not marked. Buoys are removed for the season in late October. Be especially cautious around Pelican Point.

Five lighted buoys assist boaters with navigation and marking some of the hazards on the lake. The lighted buoys are located near Pelican Point, Browns Point, Bucks Point, Tunnel Island and Stones. They are removed late in the season when the lake begins to freeze over.

Hazard signs are posted at all public access launching ramps on Eagle Lake to give boaters information about hazards on the lake. The sheriff’s office maintains at least one patrol boat to assist boaters.
