Boat Launch Information & Locations


The City of Muskego has several public boat launches (See New Municipal Code Information):

Launches located on Little Muskego Lake will be affected by the lake draw down normally done in the beginning of October. Due to these lower lake levels, we ask that you please be careful when loading and unloading your boats. 

Launching Fees

Launching fees must be paid at all times - during open water, weekends, or weekday / all-year round. Parking Pay station receipts at Idle Isle or receipt envelopes available at launch sites or season pass affixed to windshield to show notice of payment are required. Failure to comply with payment will result in a citation. 

Launch fees are required only if you will be using the launch to physically launch your trailered watercraft. If your watercraft is not trailered, and you are carrying the equipment into the water, such as you would do with a kayak or stand-up paddle board, then you do not need to pay a launching fee.

There is a $8.00 daily fee per craft for the launches at Denoon, Boxhorn, Durham, Oak Cout, Hillview and Pleasant View.   There are no attendants on duty and portable toilets are provided.

The launch fees at Idle Isle Park are dependent on the size of the watercraft.  There are attendants and restrooms at Idle Isle available. 

  1. Boat less than 20-ft length trailered & motorized - $11.00 for both residents and non-residents
  2. Boat 20-ft but less than 26-ft length trailered & motorized - $12.00 for residents and $18.00 for non-residents  
  3. Boat 26-ft or more in length trailered & motorized - $12.00 for residents and $18.00 for non-residents
