RED FLAG (Effective 7/16/2024)

Due to the large rainfalls in the last two days, the lake level is high and a red flag warning has been issued. While the red flags remain up, the entire lake is no wake. Flags are posted at the dam and the boat launches in Mariner’s Cove and Sunshine Subdivision.

Help Us Personalize the New Village Hall Paver Patio!

Third Lake Neighbors,

Help us personalize the new paver patio at the Village Hall. If you haven’t visited us in the past few years, there have been a lot of improvements. We are putting on some final touches and want to involve the Third Lake community. We are selling commemorative pavers to individualize our front entrance. Our tight knit community has so much history, and what better way to encapsulate that than with an engraved paver. This is not a fundraiser, the price associated is only to cover the cost of engraving. Once the pavers are engraved, they will be installed in the patio by the front entrance to be cherished for generations. You can honor a lost loved one, highlight your family name, or mention a favorite pet. The information on how to order is attached below. There are a limited number of pavers that can be engraved, so get your order in soon!  All orders must be in by August 15th, 2024. Feel free to reach out with any questions to

3rd Annual Fishing Derby

Thanks to all that participated in the Third Lake Fishing Derby. The weather was perfect and many fish were caught (and released). The grand prize winner was a 24 inch Northern Pike. This makes two years in a row for our winning angler!

Lake Vegetation

We are aware that the vegetation is worse this year compared to past years. The early ice out (melting ice) caused all the vegetation to get an early start on all the lakes in the Midwest, not just Third Lake. We have completed our vegetation survey and we will be treating for the Milfoil only this year. Third Lake only treats for invasive species.

We have received many phone calls at the Village with suggestions on how to fix this problem. Cutting the weeds is a short term fix as the weed parts that fall to the bottom and will grow as additional plants so the weeds will get thicker. Please do not dump chemicals in the lake. We are balancing between a healthy lake for fishermen and sports lovers and mass weed kills from chemical treatment causes algae blooms. Some of the blooms may be dangerous for people with health problems and pets.

The Village is in constant communication with the Lake County Health Department regarding lake management and is working with Wisconsin Lake and Pond resource for a multi-year plan to reduce the Curly Leaf weed.

We are also working on multiple directions to reduce the invasive species coming in from the creek. If you have any questions please reach out to the village.
