   Boating, Water Skiing, and Tubing

.The speed limit on Lake Wildwood is 30 MPH. (Lake Tanglewood is restricted to electric motors and self propelled boats). Power boats must be under 19 feet. Pontoon boats must be under 24 feet with outboard engine only. Every full dues membership is permitted one each of any type water craft, ie. canoe, kayak, fishing boat, row boat, sail boat, paddle boat, jet ski, power boat, pontoon boat. Hence, two jet skis would require two memberships, but a fleet of different type boats can be owned by a single membership. Boats must be registered with state as well as LWA, must be insured, and must be member owned. Guests are permitted to launch boats meeting LWA conditions at an established fee, however not on busy holiday week ends and not at the same time as host member's boat is using the lake. Motorized traffic goes counter clockwise in buoyed wake zones 100 ft from shore between 8 AM and sunset. Lake Wildwood enforces a 30 MPH speed limit, during normal lake pool conditions . No wake zones, (5 MPH speed limit), are in place on the southern end and in coves. Lake Tanglewood is restricted to electric trolling motors and self propelled crafts. Four boat ramps exist on the big lake for easy launching, two at the marina, one at the dam, and one at West Beach 2. Courtesy docksides are located at the marina, West Beach 2 and the dam. Seasonal slip rentals are available in limited quantity at the marina. A gas pump, bait house, rest rooms, playground, picnic area, and snack bar are all conveniently located at the marina and lodge. Most week days find the lake delightfully empty and locals will try to sneak out of work early to ski when the water is 'like glass'. Week ends are busier but rarely too crowded to enjoy the water. Much of the congestion is self regulated; when it gets a little busy, people pull up to beach or shore, take a break and wait until someone else goes in. If you enjoy fishing, canoeing or kayaking, there are always quiet corners you can find away from the hubbub, where you can share a peaceful moment with a heron or a family of ducks or a doe coming down to drink with her fawn.
