Boat Launch User Fees

Boat Launch User Fees

The City of Beaver Dam has mandatory boat launch user fees in order to make improvements to the city's water-based facilities and Beaver Dam Lake.

Daily and annual permits will be sold through "self" registration at the boat launch sites located at Edgewater, Tahoe and Waterworks Parks.

Annual permits may also be purchased in the Finance Department at City Hall, 205 S Lincoln Ave, Beaver Dam, WI.  Office hours are Mon-Fri, 7:30am-4:30pm.

Residents are those who live within the city limits of Beaver Dam.  Non-Residents are those who live outside the city limits.  

Inspectors observing violations of boat launching user fees may issue citations.  The basic penalty for a violation will be $20.  If unpaid after 72 hours, the violation shall increase to $30.
