Portage Lakes Life Jacket Loaner program

The Loan a Life Jacket stations have been put in place in effort to prevent drowning incidents. This program encourages Portage Lakes State Park visitors to borrow a life jacket if needed from one of two life jacket stations at the Old State park and New State Park locations. All life jackets are to be worn while near or in the water and returned prior to leaving Portage Lakes State Park. Available from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend each summer. Loanable life jackets have been acquired by donations of the local community
