Non-motorized boats are allowed on all lakes, but not all lakes are easily accessed. Pine Lake, Beaver Lake and Chickasaw Lake (in that order) have the easiest access. Off-road driving is not permitted, even if pulling a boat to launch in the water.
A boat launch ramp is located on the north edge of Hyde Lake just off Great View Drive North. Motorized watercraft are not permitted, but kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, sailboats and other personal watercraft (14 feet or less) are encouraged.
