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. Click here to view this information.
Officers who have the wristbands are as follows: SOUTH SHORE: Lorna Denig (847) 530-1514 Marilyn Henry (312) 618-4624 SOUTH CIRCLE: Maggie Keefe (618) 561-0312 Joe Bigalke (847) 363-8483 Larry Leafblad (847) 406-7180 WEST SHORE: EAST SHORE: Ron Mittlestaedt (847) 773-447-0270 NORTH CIRCLE: Dave Coulter (847) 347-4685 John Sonnenberg (847) 922-5572 NORTH SHORE: Linda Kuntner 847-997-9877
Make contact now because it won't be too many days before the raft is out and ready for summertime fun. (We are asking a $5 annual contribution to cover the cost of wristbands, motion activated lighting and bird deflection. This will be an annual charge.) In exchange for receiving the wristbands, an adult from each household will sign a letter verifying they have read and understand the new raft rules. We are suggesting that set of rules be posted in your home in a prominent place so that all family and guests can see. Your officers are grateful for all the input we have heard since last fall about the raft...we have done almost everything that was suggested. We wish you a wonderful, safe and fun summer among an incredible group of neighbors!
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.
