New Community Dock

The COC has recently opened a new public access dock, located not far from the town's public boat access, only a short walk from the Center's waterfront. The dock is located off the dirt road that runs parallel to Lost Nation Road, along the lake, not far from here. ​See map. Parking is available in the field across the road.​ 

Community members are encouraged to enjoy the new dock: it's open to the general public for all users to share. With this beautiful weather, come check it out! You will know you are at the right spot when you see a sign that says "Public access dock, use at your own risk."
