Clamshell Lake boat landing temporarily closes for maintenance
Closure began May 16 and will last about a week and a half.
PEQUOT LAKES — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is temporarily closing its Clamshell Lake boat landing located on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes near Pequot Lakes.
The closure began Monday, May 16, and will last about a week and a half.
The Corps of Engineers will perform maintenance on the ramp and parking lot to ensure it is safe for everyone who uses it.
An alternative ramp for the public is the Lower Hay access point off County Road 145 and Rustic Point Road near Pequot Lakes.
Over time, heavy boat ramp usage and activities such as power loading boats onto trailers damages the ramps. The activity often creates large holes at the end of the ramp that can become extremely dangerous.
