    About Lake Wisconsin - West Point
    Located in Sauk County, Wisconsin

    Within three hours of Chicago and Milwaukee lies Lake Wisconsin, otherwise known as the "Badger State" lake.

    Taking on the state name is quite the tall task, but Lake Wisconsin lives up to the hype, located just south of the state tourism hub Wisconsin Dells and slightly over 30 miles from the state capital of Madison.

    The nearest hospital is the SSM Health St. Clare Hospital- Baraboo, and the nearest airport is the General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee.

    Life on the Water

    Today Lake Wisconsin spans an immense 7,197 acres and features 57 miles of shoreline perfect for fishing, canoeing, camping, and much more.

    Lake Wisconsin claims eight different species of fish, including the sturgeon, a descendant of the Cretaceous period, said to live up to 100 years and can grow up to 100 pounds.

    What's Nearby

    Since before Wisconsin was even a state, ferry boats under the name "Colsac" have run trips across Lake Wisconsin. Today "Colsac III" cruises carry passengers 24 hours a day, seven days a week -- so long as the lake is thawed out.
