Boaters Need Permit for State Lakes
April 2, 2008 - The Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources is reminding boaters that they must purchase a DNR Lake Permit if they plan to boat on state park, reservoir or forestry lakes.
In January 2006, the DNR Lake Permit replaced the daily and annual boat launch fees the agency had issued. The cost is $20 a year for motorized watercraft permit and $5 a year for a non-motorized watercraft permit.
All private watercraft using state park, reservoir or forestry lakes must have a DNR Lake Permit, including personal watercraft, motorboats, canoes, paddleboats, rowboats and all watercraft moored at marinas, private docks, group docks or bank ties. State-owned watercraft and state-managed boat rental concessions are exempt.
All boaters must still register their watercraft as the law requires through the Indiana Department of Motor Vehicles. The Lake Permit does not replace that registration process; it only replaces the daily and annual launch permits for state park and reservoirs properties sold prior to 2006.
The Lake Permit is available for purchase at state park, reservoir and forests at property offices and entrance gates when staffed. It is also available at the Customer Service Center in the Indiana Government Center in Indianapolis and at estore.dnr.state.in.us.
For a full listing of bodies of water that require boaters to have a Lake Permit, visit the DNR's website, www.in.gov/dnr/.
