The City of Monona has 3 boat launches on Lake Monona at: Lottes Park, Winnequah Trail, and Tonyawatha Trail. Only the site at Lottes Park has a parking lot for vehicles and trailers. A boat launch permit (daily or seasonal) is required. Permits are available for purchase at each launch site, as well as at Monona's City Hall and Community Center, and at West Marine. Seasonal launch permits are valid at all Dane County, City of Madison, and City of Monona launch sites, but permits purchased in Monona help to fund improvements to the launches in Monona, including new docks and dredging of landing areas.
