Having Fun


Playing on Torch Lake is a BLAST!
Wading, swimming, floating, tubing, waterskiing,
Wakeboarding, kneeboarding, boating, fishing,
paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, sailing,
sailboat racing or a sunset cruise…

We all love this gorgeous lake!
We all share a responsibility to care for her clear, blue waters.
As a community, let’s work together and Care for Torch Lake!

Discovering the watershed is SURPRISING!
The Torch Lake Watershed may be small,
but there are plenty of opportunities
to get off the beaten path and explore.


Leave only footprints
Take only photos.
