On June 21st, 2014, the DLIA sent a special eNews consisting of a survey regarding a proposed Michigan DNR boat ramp on Douglas Lake. In case you missed it please click here to review the original Q&A and participate. Note: click here to view the most current Q&A dated 6-28-2014. Thank You.

In case you missed this, Mike Berry (part of the Trimpe clan) made and posted this video on the I Love Douglas Lake facebook page.  It's worth a look.  Just click the image to watch.

In addition to our own, there's another real neat events calendar for all of Northern Michigan. Click here.

We are lucky.  Our lake is in good shape so far. 
We need your help to keep it that way. 
If you see any of these invasive species, please report their
location to the DLIA, to the Bug Camp and/or to the Tip of the Mitt.

The Third Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade 2014


The Third Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade took place on Friday, July 4th.  The theme was “The Fourth of July” and raised money for “Angel Ambassadors”.  The DLB provided judges and prizes again, along with food and beverages at a nominal charge.


Once again in 2015, Kathy Buchweitz and Marilyn Kelemen will be leading the planning committee for the Fourth Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade. Contact them if you could help out or offer suggestions for improving the event.
