Fall Ditch Cleanup Oct 9, 2021

Thanks to the volunteers who braved the weather to help with our semiannual road cleanup. Turn out was not as good as we had in the spring, but we still were able to nearly finish the 5 1/2 miles of road that the Lake Association and Foundation are responsible for on Becker County Hwy 37. We collected more than 10 bags of garbage, a tire and a few other odds and ends. Please remind friends and family to help us keep the area beautiful by emptying boats, trailers and pickup trucks of any trash that can fly out. And, please don’t throw trash out your windows.

SEE Committee

The SEE Committee, with input from lake residents, has put together an information sheet with recommendations to improve lake life for everyone.  Much of this information is put out by the MN DNR but it also includes some Bad Medicine specific information.  This sheet is also posted on the NEW BMLAA kiosk at the public landing as well as all resorts.  Please review and consider to better the experience of all Bad Medicine Lake lovers!  The SEE Committee supports all legal recreation on Bad Medicine.
