Improvements include the complete replacement of the 36-foot-wide launch ramp and continued dredging of the channel that began in February 2018.

According to an official announcement, the renovation project is funded through the State of Michigan Waterways Improvement Fund, a restricted fund derived from boating registration fees and Michigan marine fuel tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of public recreational boating facilities.

Indian Lake State Park is a public recreation area covering 847 acres in Schoolcraft County on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The state park is made up of two units that are three miles apart, one on the south shore of Indian Lake, one on the west shore.
