DNR: ‘White Lake boating access site to close from mid-May to mid-August for site improvements’

Last week, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced that the White Lake boating access site, located off of Duck Lake Road in Oakland County, will temporarily close from mid-May to mid-August for site improvements.

The DNR advises White Lake residents to plan ahead and launch their boats prior to the mid-May construction closure. From mid-March until the project begins, the DNR will supply a skid pier to assist residents with launching their boats.

The improvement project will include 17 additional parking spaces, a wider launch ramp, additional landscaping and improved vehicle circulation. The new site design will allow vehicles to both enter and exit off Duck Lake Road, reducing vehicle traffic for neighboring property owners.

This project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund. The restricted fund, which is derived from boat registration fees and the Michigan marine fuel tax, helps fund the construction, operation and maintenance of public recreational boating facilities.
