I called foss state park and spoke to them myself. The lady said yes there has been some blue algae but most of it has dispersed since the rain we've got the last couple days. She said that if you happen to see an area that looks kinda like pea soup stay out of it and it might be better to leave pets at home because they don't know not to drink from those areas. Other than that it's perfectly safe.

"the lady" said? Maybe you should do your own research. This stuff can be very toxic.

I'm pretty sure she did do her research...She called someone who worked up there. If you don't like what she put out here, then you find out a different way...

My family and I have been alot this year already and it has been fine. My children have swam and we have rode sea doos. They did warn us if the water looks discolored to stay away. Everythings been fine for us though, as a matter of fact we were just there yesterday and had a ball!

I've already been to foss with my kids several times since my last post. We all swam in the lake and none of us are sick or dead so it's obviously okay. If you are too scared to swim at foss then I suggest you go somewhere else or maybe hide in your house and cower under your blanket some more. I'm pretty sure if it was unsafe the people who work there would be telling people not to go into the lake.

Other major lakes around the state are advising to "stay out" of their waters, due to BGA problems.

The lake is clear and good with no algae at this point. I contacted Foss State Park. They say it's cleared up now and safe.
