The DNR reminds us of these...
General ice thickness guidelines
For New, Clear Ice Only
- 2" or less - STAY OFF
- 4" - Ice fishing or other activities on foot
- 5" - Snowmobile or ATV
- 8" - 12" - Car or small pickup
- 12" - 15" - Medium truck
Remember that these thicknesses are merely guidelines for new, clear, solid ice. Many factors other than thickness can cause ice to be unsafe.
If you head out this weekend, let us know what kind of ice conditions you encounter.
