|The Horseshoe Lake Improvement Association brings lakeshore owners together to discuss matters that affect the quality of life on the lake. The Association is a non-profit organization. Membership is open to all Horseshoe lakeshore property owners. |
Horseshoe Lake is located on the border of Polk and Barron Counties about three miles northwest of the town of Turtle Lake, Wisconsin. Approximately 60% of the lake is in Polk County. The lake has 377 surface water acres.
HLIA member meetings are held several times each summer.

A request from Dave Blumer, Lake Scientist, SEH:
Now, and the next couple of weeks is a good time to start driving around and snapping photos of runoff around your lakes. Some of you have projects where photos of runoff events are directly pertinent to projects currently being conducted, other might be collecting these photos just to have something to reference now and in the future. In either case, I would like to have these photos for my collections related to each lake. If you get a chance to drive around in the next couple of weeks, make sure your camera is in the car. If you stop to take a picture, make sure you do it safely and do not trespass. When you take a picture, please record the date and time, and where the photo was taken (roadway bridge or culvert crossing on a given road, possibly nearest address, or drop a GPS point if you have such capability), and which direction you were facing (N,S,E,W or upstream/downstream, etc). If you have a county plat book you can jot down the township and section.

Divers and Wannabes,
If you have not already been certified, now is the time to start. The lakeshore association is still willing to reimburse the cost of the certification if you contribute 10 hours of dive time this year.
SNUBA is a way for HLIA members to be involved, hands-on, in the ongoing effort to control milfoil.
Email HLIA if you are interested. More SNUBA information here.
The "Dredge Report"
Use caution at the boat landing!
The lake level is up, but rocks may still be a hazard for boat launching.
No power loading!
DNR warning regarding the clearing of lakeshore.
Some lakeshore owners received warnings from the DNR regarding the clearing of beach and lakeshore. Only a 30 foot strip may be cleared, and only by hand -- no chemicals or machines. Violators may be fined.
$40.00 of your $50.00 membership fee goes to the HLIA Milfoil funds account.
