Boating Regulations

When it comes to boating on Windsor Lake there is actually a lot to know. First of all you do need to have a permit. This included both motorized and non-motorized boats. In 2020 the cost for a annual motorized boat permit was $450. They only sell 20 permits per year so you need to be on it if you want to spend your summers pulling the kids on a tube around Windsor Lake.

Motorized boats are allowed Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the heart of the summer and only on Saturday and Sunday for late August and September.

Non-motorized boats  including kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards are allowed Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The permit is $10 a day or $50 for the year.
