The Department of Natural Resources today announced that Pike Lake, Bodi Lake, Culhane Lake and Little Lake Harbor — previously closed to any public access due to the Duck Lake Fire — will open to evacuated residents and property owners at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 2.
Residents are advised to check in with fire officials at County Road 500 off M-123. Residents must bring proof of residence/ownership for entry. A driver’s license bearing the address of property in the fire zone is acceptable proof of residence/ownership. A driver’s license without an address in the fire zone is acceptable proof of ownership/residence, provided it is accompanied by a tax bill or utility bill with an address in the fire zone. The name on the tax bill or utility bill must match the name on the license.
