Support Our Lake

"Skogman Lake is most valuable, important, and admired by all who live on the lake. Like all valuables, our lake needs to be protected.
Who could care more for our lakes than the people who love them and live on them?
That someone is you!"

Our mission is to serve as stewards of our lake community, to protect, preserve, and improve the quality of Skogman Lake.  The county board delegates specific authorities to Skogman LID.  Some of these may include the right to:

  • Apply for and comply with DNR and other agency and local permits and policies required for specific lake management projects.

  • Undertake lake research projects.

  • Conduct programs of water improvement and conservation.

  • Serve as local sponsor/recipient for state and federal projects and grants.

  • Maintain public beaches, docks, and other public facilities.

  • Regulate water surface use.

  • Provide and finance certain local government services within the LID.

  • Implement a water monitoring program.

Projects and activities undertaken by the LID must comply with all local, state, and federal regulations.

Skogman LID must have an annual meeting of property owners in July or August to elect new directors, approve the budget and projects for the upcoming year, and discuss other district activities.

Wake Boats and Wake Surfing

We all know that Wake Surfing boats generate big waves. According to the U of M 2021 study, the waves are 3 to 7 times bigger than a normal speed boat and the waves affect the shoreline more than 500 feet away.

The Skogman LID board requests that Wake Surfing recreation remain in the center of the lake as far away from the shore as possible.  Thank you.
