A small proportion of the land adjacent to Lake Isle, and all of the islands in the lake, are Crown land Most of it is maintained in its natural state except for the portion containing Camp He-Ho-Ha. Two quarter sections south of Camp He-Ho-Ha were established as a Natural Area for recreation in 1971 and some trails have been developed there.
Lake Isle commonly has blooms of blue-green algae during summer, and aquatic vegetation grows extensively throughout much of the lake. All tributary streams to, and the outlet from, the lake are closed to fishing for a period in spring. The actual closing and opening dates may vary from year to year. For much of the year and generally just a few feet from shore you will find some of the best Lake Skiing available anywhere.
Personal Note: Some of the vegatation and growth in many of the Lake Isle subdivisions are the most scenic areas you can find and all have wonderful boat and shore access. For more information call Charlene and Kelvin at 780-991-5107.
