The mechanical boat tram located just south of the bridge at Dunton Locks County Park will open again to transport boats between Muskrat Lake and Lake Sallie.
This quiet, 53-acrea year-around park contains two picnic shelters, hiking & mountain biking trails which double as cross-country ski trails in the winter, a paved recreation trail, interpretive history signs, two fishing piers, and a mechanical boat tram that transports boats, allowing boat travel from Detroit Lakes to Shoreham.
The Tram will run, weather permitting, from the first weekend in June through Labor Day. The Tram operates from 10 a.m. to dusk and will also operate during summer holidays. Season passes are available in advance at the county highway building at a cost of $100. Daily use passes will cost $20 per boat.
