Lac Vieux Desert Reservoir The Department of Natural Resources announced today that the Lac Vieux Desert Reservoir Boating Access Site in the Upper Peninsula’s Gogebic County will be closed for construction beginning June 16.

The construction upgrade will include dredging the boat launch area and installing a new 36-foot wide by 70-foot long concrete ramp, and a new five-foot by 30-foot courtesy pier. The current ramp is in poor condition and deteriorating.

Funds for this project were awarded through a grant from the Wisconsin Valley Improvement Company and the Michigan State Waterways Fund.

Construction is scheduled to be complete on June 27.

Until repairs are complete, boaters and anglers can access the lake from a fee site in Indian Village on the northeast side of the lake. There are also two launches in Wisconsin. One launch is in the National Forest Campground, and the other is the Thunder Bay launch on the far southeast side of the lake.
