Carlyle Lake Boating and Sailing


category : Boating
Carlyle Lake Boating and Sailing For the boating enthusiast, Carlyle Lake is a great place to cruise for pleasure, water ski, or spend the day fishing. The wide-open waters make Carlyle Lake a sailor's paradise. This 15 by 3 1/2 mile body of water is one of the top inland sailing lakes in the nation. All major developed recreation areas have boat ramps with courtesy docks. Small boat access ramps can be found in hunting /fishing parking lots scattered around the lake.

Carlyle Lake is well known to sailors as one of the best and most challenging lakes for sailboats. The lake was host for the 1994 U.S. Olympic Festival Sailing Competition. There are sailing races almost every weekend through the summer. Boats and watercraft of all types are suitable for use on the lake.

The Carlyle Sailing Association has paved parking for 380 boats, 3 electric jib cranes, 1300 ft. of dock and two launching ramps. The grounds are located in Hazlett State Park with a breakwater protected harbor, beach area for catamarans, picnic pavilion, shower/rest rooms, clubhouse, resident harbormaster, and are adjacent to a full service campground.
