We visited this lake during August and were taken for a ride on a pontoon. It was simply lovely - both the lake and surroundings - peaceful and tranquil.

Clean water and wonderful little town. Hometown feel with wonderful places to eat. Lots to do on the lake. Put your own boat in or rent one. Not busy for families but big enough to enjoy. Sandy beach as well.

Tranquil area to sit on the shore of the lake on the east side of the lake. Surrounded by historic homes and a very short walk from downtown Oconomowoc. Boat parade in late summer accompanied by fireworks display.

The beach is good but is crowded & parking is a chore on nice days. The lifeguards are friendly but somewhat disorganized in the fee shack. Generally a good swim & sunbathe experience
