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

There is a $7 daily fee per craft. 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.

Season Passes

For those who will be launching watercraft often; season passes are available. Payment can be made with cash or checks; credit cards are not accepted. Passes can be purchased in person at Muskego City Hall or by completing the season pass portion of a launch envelope which is used at all the public launches except at Idle Isle (due to electronic pay stations there). Place a check in your daily launch envelope and include your home mailing address and a season pass will be mailed to you.

Season pass fees are:

  • City of Muskego residents - $42
  • City of Muskego senior citizen 60+ years of age - $14
  • Non-resident of any age - $63

Note: A second pass for same owner and trailer may be purchased at half-price and must be purchased at the same time the first pass is being purchased.


  • There is no power loading when launching or loading of personal watercraft at the municipal boat ramps.
  • No boat shall be moored to any public lake access dock or shoreline without prior approval from the Parks and Conservation Committee. Mooring is defined as tying boat to said dock/shoreline with the engine/motor off.
