Boat Storage

Due to the extreme and dangerous conditions, Lloyd Beach will not be accessible during the winter and the gate to access the beach will remain locked.

If you store a boat/paddleboard at the beach and would like to retrieve it, you must make an appointment by calling the Park District administrative office at (847) 501-2040.

Storage Racks

Storage racks are available at Lloyd Boat Launch and Elder Lane Beach. The purchase of a storage rack membership at Lloyd includes two parking passes. Sail lockers are included with sailboat storage at Lloyd Boat Launch only. Storage racks are not available for rowing shells, Hobie Cat Sailboats, Mirage Island Kayaks, or similar boats.

Current rack holders have priority for renewal. Racks not renewed by May 1 will be given to patrons on the waitlist. To be added to the waitlist, call the park district administrative office at (847) 501-2040.

Boat Rack Application

Sail Lockers

Sail lockers are reserved for patrons who pay storage fees for a Sunfish, Laser, or similar boat that is stored on the racks north of the beach house at Lloyd only. Lockers are not included for kayak or canoe racks. The sail lockers will be assigned to patrons as they renew their boat storage rack for the season. Patrons will be issued a specific locker number for their rigging. Any lockers that are occupied and are not on record at the Winnetka Park District main office will be emptied and the items confiscated.

Fenced-In Boat Storage

The Winnetka Park District maintains a small fenced-in storage area for boats on trailers. This area is full and a wait list has been formed. To be added to the waitlist, call the park district administrative office at (847) 501-2040.

Winnetka Park District residents have priority on the wait-list over nonresidents. Any boat in this area must be 32′ feet or less from the tip of the trailer tongue to the back of the prop.
