>Klondike Lake Opens for Boating Starting June 30
Precautions are still being taken to guard against invasive mussels at this site, so all motorized watercraft will be inspected before being launched. Recreational users with smaller, non-motorized watercraft that are not transported with a trailer can access the lake at any time.
