OCONOMOWOC, Wis. - The Department of Natural Resources will begin major renovations of the Okauchee Lake public boat access site located in the Village of Oconomowoc in Waukesha County later this month. The boat launch will remain open through Memorial Day weekend. Beginning May 26, the site will be closed to all use including boat launching and shore fishing. It is likely that the site will remain closed for construction throughout this coming summer.

Work at the site will involve reconfiguring traffic flow through the site, reconstruction of parking areas, storm water control measures and removal of the vault toilet.

This project is funded using Sports Fish Restoration grant funding. The engineering plans were prepared by SEH, formerly Yaggy Colby Assoc., of Delafield for the DNR.
