Dark houses, fish houses and portables must be off the ice no later than midnight on March 7th for Lake Minnetonka and other metro lakes. Motorized vehicles should not be used if dangerous ice conditions exist. If shelters are not removed by the deadline, owners are subject to prosecution or the shelter and its contents could be removed by an enforcement officer.
Help Keep The Lake Clean
It is unlawful to improperly dispose of garbage, sewage, dog or other pet feces, waste water, trash, equipment, propane tanks, plastics, or any other items on the ice. Please clean up around your shack and be kind to our lakes.
