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 exceptionalfishing with many species of fish.
