Ponca City’s Board of Commissioners approved changes in all permits for activities on Lake Ponca.

Based on a recommendation from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board made in November, commissioners approved the elimination of all boat ski permits, lake packages and 14-day permits.

New permit fees were approved which allow individuals to recreate on the lake, ski, or fish from a boat all for the same fee, simplifying the fee structure at Lake Ponca.

The fees went into effect Jan. 1 and include:

Lake Ponca User Fees:

  • Boating (per craft except for dealer permit):
    • Daily boat (resident) $5.00
    • Daily boat (non-resident) $10.00
    • Annual boat (resident) $25.00
    • Annual boat (non-resident) $60.00
    • 14-day boat (non-resident) eliminated
    • Dealer/demonstrator boat permit $50.00
  • Separate permits for skiing and lake packages are eliminated
