DNR closes Bass Lake landing due to dangerous ice
The boat landing for Bass Lake in St. Croix County has been temporarily closed to vehicles because of deteriorating ice, the state Department of Natural Resources reported today, Friday, Feb. 18.
The landing is located at the north end of the lake off Townline Road in the Town of Somerset. Unseasonably warm weather has caused an early melting of ice close to the access. Several vehicles have broken through the ice right at the ramp, DNR conservation wardens said.
