DNR – Lake Maps


For those of you unaware, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has inland lake map data available for viewing on their website. Not all lakes are included, but they are listed alphabetically by county for quick reference. These could serve to point out ice-sailing hot spots such as inlets, outlets, islands, springs, depth (which is a huge influence on ice formation), launch sites, etc. If considering exploring a potential hidden gem, it would make sense to research this free platform. Never sail alone, sail safe, and always reduce your risk of becoming a statistic.
