Boat Launches in Lake County

The last thing I would want to do is go out on a boat in this weather.

We chose to live in the Midwest however, and that's just how it goes. But. With the rampant changes of the weather forecast, it seems as though it could be in the 60s or 70s next week.

You know what that means. Time to play with our water toys. Unwrap all of that mess off your boat and take it to the boat launch.

If the weather was being a good sport, we could have brought our boats or rented one last week in some locations.

So as we watch the snow fall and stare into the sky hoping for the sun to come out, we can dream of a snowless April so we can bring our vessels out on one of the 70 bodies of water in Lake County. Here is your guide to Boat Launches in Lake County.
