Due to ongoing search and recovery operations in progress on Silver Lake for the drowning victim, all access to Silver Lake is temporarily closed. This means the beach, boat landing, park and parking lot areas are closed to the general public until further notice. We are also asking all property owners abutting Silver Lake to stay off the water until further notice. Personnel and resources from City of Portage, Columbia County, Sauk County and Dane County are coordinating in this search effort.
Thank you for your cooperation. We will immediately announce when Silver Lake will re-open to the public.
