Vehicle/ATV/Snowmobile Operation on Muskego Lakes:
You are allowed to operate a Vehicle/ATV/Snowmobile on Little Muskego Lake as long as you take the most direct route from the boat launch/access point directly to the ice. We understand that you will have to drive across exposed lake bed to get to that area. Once you reach the frozen lake you need to remain on the ice until you decide to exit the lake. Contact WI DNR if you need further explanation to their state statute.
