Boat Ramp Keys/Decals:

The 2021 Gages Lake boating season is here!  Boat keys and decals are for Wildwood Residents only and are good May 1st, 2021 through April 30, 2022. Boat keys and decals must be bought at the office and application forms can be found on the website on the “Forms and Financials” page. Decals are required on motorized boats only.  Additional decals are available for $10 each.

Please bring your current IL DNR information and there will be a fee of $100/$75 seniors 65+, this includes 1 boat key and 1 decal (we accept credit cards, checks, and cash but no bills over $50). The new boat ramp padlock was placed on Saturday, May 1st.  Please note that last season's boat ramp key will no longer be valid.

Update 6/10/2021:  Please advise that the algae/growth seen on Gages Lake and Valley Lake are filmanteous in nature and therefore non-toxic and common (while being somewhat unpleasant). Due to extreme high temperatures and a dry couple of weeks; many lakes and water bodies around the area are experiencing low water levels and high plant growth from the constant sunlight. Plants that were submerged with higher lake levels before are showing on the surface and becoming more obvious. The beaches/water are safe, are tested by the Health Department weekly, and good to use going forward.
