Floating rafts need permits
A permit is required for floating swim rafts that remain on the lake overnight.
According to DNR Boat and Water safety rule 6110.1800, anyone putting out a floating raft or boatlift that does not extend from shore must get a permit if they are left overnight.
The structures must also have a light or reflective material attached and visible in all directions. Permits are not needed for rafts left out only during the day or for boatlifts touching the shore.
