It doesn't matter if you own property at Sylvia
Lake, or just visit, everyone knows about Indian Head. This land,
the actual rock, is owned by the Kraker family. In years past,
the land around Indian Head had no houses. Local people came to
Sylvia Lake to swim and jump off Indian Head without tresspassing
on private property.
Things are different now, all the land around Indian Head is privately
owned and people live there year round.
This Fall, 2006, some changes have occurred to Indian Head. There
is no way of knowing if the changes are natural, or a result of
human intervention. Decide for yourself.
Below are two photos. The first, taken by Jodi Hatch, of Wintergreen
Bay, shows Indian Head late in the summer 2006. The second photo
was taken by Gale Ferguson on Saturday, October 21, 2006. See the
The message is that we are all responsible for preserving the
beauty and natural resources of Sylvia Lake, whether you are a
property owner or a visitor. We all hope Indian Head continues
to be a valuable landmark at Sylvia for years to come.
