I'll take a guess that it was a ramp for lifting ice from the lake so that the blocks of ice could be loaded onto horse drawn sleds or truck and hauled to shore.

Something like a little up-hill rail-road track?? Just to get it onto a sled or the bed of a truck.

It might have been a portable device that was moved around to different locations on the surface of the ice. Then some how one year it was not pulled off the ice in time during the spring thaw and ended up where it is now.

That's my guess.
