Village Clean Up Day
Sponsored by The Chippewa Pride Group and the Chippewa Lake Water Ski Show Team, the Village Parks Spring “Opening the Season – Clean Up Day” is May 7th at 9:00 AM. We need your help! Bring rakes and yard cleaning equipment and meet at Point Park.
RAMP KEYS AND
The locks on the boat ramp gates will NOT be changed for the 2016 season. Your current watercraft stickers and ramp keys are good for this year. Only new residents with watercraft will need to purchase watercraft stickers and ramp keys if they wish to utilize the village watercraft ramp. The ramp key cost is $15/key and $5/sticker and is REQUIRED FOR ACCESS to the Village watercraft ramp.
Please note the purpose of the watercraft sticker and boat key are to utilize our Village ramp only and suit no other purpose.
Just a reminder, that while the lake is public, our watercraft ramp is not. Attempting to put a watercraft in the lake via our ramp without a current Chippewa Lake Village access sticker, giving your key or opening the gate with your key for anyone else, loaning or giving your sticker or key to any other individual will result in revocation of ramp privileges and turning in your ramp key.
Please display your Watercraft Sticker at all times on the back of the transom above the water line, below the watercraft over line and to the right (starboard) side of the watercraft’s centerline as you stand in back of the watercraft looking at the transom. The watercraft sticker shall be in clear view without obstruction at all times.
Close and lock the Watercraft Ramp Gate immediately after passing through the gate. Your key cannot be taken out of the lock until the lock is closed or locked. Do not leave the gate open while you load or unload your watercraft from the trailer.
Cars/trucks with watercraft trailers may not be parked in the Lake (Beach) Access Parking Lot or in the Watercraft Launch area for any longer than 15 minutes.
Observed violations of the ordinance should be reported to a Committee Member and the Police.

Lake Access (beach) passes also remain at their same cost of $35.00 which includes parking at Lake Access (beach) and all village parks. Please note the Park Attendants will not be selling Lake Access passes. You may bring guests to the beach with you, however you are responsible for your guest's behavior and they cannot purchase a Lake Access (beach) pass.
