Ice Conditions at Spencer Park
Stay off of the Ice!  The lake ice is too thin for use of any kind.
Due to very low lake levels, the steep drop off around the lake is very close to the shoreline. While a step or two onto the ice may seem close to shore, the drop off could make water well over your head.
Changes in conditions will be noted as soon as possible, both here and on the park voicemail at 248-656-4657.
