There must be at least 3 people in the boat including the skier. The second speed zone is for boats not pulling skiers or tubes and is located on the east side of Indian Lake.

Boats can also anchor on the south end of Old Field Beach and at Fox Island Beach. Water depths run from 3′ to 12′. The lake bottom is mud and sand. You will need a hook anchor.
All public ramps have parking spaces for trailers and vehicles without unhooking. Moundwood and Lakeview are the busiest and largest docking areas. There are ramps at Chippewa on the north side, Blackhawk on the west, Lakeview Harbor south of the lake and Moundwood on the east side.
