There was a thread a while ago discussing times past when water skiing was a viable activity on Baldwin Lake. I can't find that thread, so I'm starting a new one to post some pictures I found recently. These were taken in 1993 by an unknown photographer.

I believe it was illegal in 93 to ski on Baldwin. I can say it was dangerous. There were several fence remnants that were under water level and could easily catch a ski or cut up a skier.

I learned to waterski in an irrigation canal, which was also illegal. I didn't get caught. Boots never does anything illegal as she never drives over 55 when she knows the CHP may be watching.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

Very cute. Just wait. Your turn is coming. Meanwhile, stop trolling legitimate threads.

Troll? Why, yes I do smell a troll. The question is, which is it, the canal guy or the know-it-all?

It's actually not, nor was it illegal. If there's enough water you can go paddleboarding and kite surfing, they'll even allow duck hunting in the fall with enough water! Dangerous though? Yes very, as mentioned above the could be fences underwater, so it's ill advised.

At one time there were even plans ro dredge it and make it another recreational lake, but with all the alkaline in it, meh.

Of course that was back when we had real winters!!!

Not sure why you are confused???? The thread is about Baldwin Lake and waterskiing. I responded about that very thread. If you don't agree with it say so. Otherwise I fail to see how your dig here added anything helpful or useful to the subject.

I know my great grandparents and my grandma use to ice skate on Baldwin lake back in the late 20's and 30's.

Like a lot of people, we have been canceled by Foremost Insurance. Who is everyone else using now? We did try to reach out to the gentleman at Allstate, but he never got back to us with a quote, and our policy is expiring in a little more than a month. We're out in Baldwin, just beneath God's Eye. Any help is much appreciated!
