Winsted Lake Closed to Traffic 06 Jan 12

Due to the unusually mild weather, which is making lake ice conditions questionable at best, McLeod County officials have closed Winsted Lake to all motorized traffic.

McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann says that includes snowmobiles, ATV’s, or any vehicle that is motorized.

Sheriff Rehmann says walking on the lake is still permitted.

The ban on motorized vehicles on the lake will remain in effect until further notice.
