Safe Boating


To promote and facilitate safe boating and a safe boating environment on Bob Lake.


Bob Lake offers an almost ideal recreational boating environment: small enough to invite canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding; large enough to accommodate PWCs, water skiers and wakeboarders. It possesses a variety of boating environments from its large open main body to a number of quiet bays and inlets where wildlife and nature are close at hand. Bob Lake is also attractive to fishermen for its stock of lake trout and small-mouth bass.

The enjoyment of all that Bob Lake has to offer depends on a few critical factors:

  • Awareness of one’s environment and potential hazards
  • Awareness of and conformity to the laws and regulations
  • Courtesy and respect

Our lake is a resource that we can all responsibly share and enjoy safely.
