Lake Onalaska
Protection & Rehabilitation District

Accessing the Lake

Accessing Lake Onalaska can be a challenge: most access points are not on the open waters of the Lake, which is rimmed with dense beds of aquatic vegetation, barrier islands, and shallow water. The Lake Onalaska Protection and Rehabilitation District (LOPRD) maintains a project to clear aquatic vegetation in buoy-marked “travel corridors” that provide access from boat landings to the main body of the lake. The LOPRD is also working with partner agencies to control sediment inflow to the Lake.
