  • All the lakes in Madison are amazing but this has the sunset. I cannot think about Madison without spending some time next to Lake Mendota. Its sunsets are amazing.

  • This is the biggest lake between Milwaukee and Prairie du Chien if you draw a straight line from one to another. Obviously water sports and fishing are as big here as the lake itself. Several gems...

  • Beautiful place to visit
  • An intact, well preserved 1200 year-old canoe with net sinkers in the hull, was discovered in 27 ft deep area, and recovered for preservation . I can hardly wait to see it in 2023.
