We saw "boat skating" , people skating, people walking from one side of the lake to the other and animals on the lake was fun. We finally got on the frozen lake and had out own fun. Scary, yet exciting!

We have visited so often that we now have a routine. From shopping, to eating, to activities, to the beac, to the lake walk, there is always something to do.

Beautiful and serene on a cold winter day...very inviting to visit by sitting and taking in the views or fishing, maybe swimming.

Enjoyed the narrated boat tour explaining the history! Very interesting to hear who owns all the houses around the lake.

It's a well know place to visit to see fall color in Wisconsin. I would try visit even next summer. It's beautiful. Plenty parking space, lots of lake facing benches. Wisconsin take care of everything to keep tourists happy. Take a sunset walk, try a local restaurant and take few pictures back home.
