Our association has created a few rules and guidelines with the help of our community which will help enhance your experience and enjoyment of Highland Lake. Please click here to learn more.
Swimming Raft Rules And Wrist Band Notice Swimmers will be required to display a HIGHLAND LAKE RESIDENT wristband. Failing that, swimmers will be asked to leave the raft and the waters of Highland Lake until they can prove they are a resident or guest of a Highland Lake resident. New rules are posted on under the rules and information tab.
Boating On Highland Lake
Illinois DNR Fishing And Boating Rules Enforcement Make sure your boat is in compliance. Over the years there have been several occasions that the Illinois DNR was called out to to inspect boaters and fishermen. In many cases this resulted in substantial fines to our residents as either the boat was not registered with the IDNR, boat lacked the proper running lights for night operation, no PFD's were present on the boat and individuals did not have their fishing license. To have a happy, fun and safe boating experience for you and your guest make sure you are ready for any possible encounters. For further information to obtain a fishing license, fishing rules and regulations and register your boat on line click here. It's strongly recommended to read the Illinois fishing rules thoroughly before making your first cast to ensure you are in compliance. For general boating and fishing requirements click here.

Current Highland Lake Fishing Regulations and Guidelines Please take a few minutes to read through these important fishing regulations and guidelines before you go out on the lake. Many fish are stocked in our lake each year by your board via our residents dues. Some fish species will not reproduce naturally on our lake so certain limits and length have been established to ensure a balance fishery for years to come. Click here to view the regulations.
