Horseshoe Lake AIS inspections usually occur on major holidays and weekends mid May thru September. We usually qualify for 200-300 hours, paid by Crow Wing County. Additionally we add 200 hours paid for by the HLPOA water protection fund. (approx $900-$2000) Lack of inspectors was a challenge in 2022.  If interested in being a paid inspector, please reach out to:
