Juneau County Lakes Area

If it’s sun and water fun you seek,

Juneau County’s lakes region is the place to

be. Petenwell and Castle Rock Lakes are

the second and fourth largest inland body of

water in Wisconsin. The lakes offer numerous

beaches with several public boat-launching

areas. The Castle Rock and Petenwell Dams

are unique because they were built on sand

and were the first such projects undertaken

in the United States. The concrete dams are

classified as “floating type construction” with

imbedded cutoff walls that penetrate deep

into the glacial sands for anchoring. The

construction of the lakes was started in 1947

and completed in 1950. Both lakes have

plenty of room for water skiing, jet skiing

and boating. Both lakes offer exceptional

fishing with many species of fish.
