Lake Mendota, Madison’s largest lake, has everything a lake lover could want on one body of water. At over 15 square miles, there is plenty of room to explore on this lake. Over a dozen boat launches make access easy. The view of the capitol skyline from across the Lake Mendota is phenomenal, especially at sunset. A drive around the lake showcases a glimpse of what makes Madison so great, with a backdrop of city architecture, historic homes, and scenic waterside parks. With close proximity to the heart of Madison, there is no shortage of restaurants and entertainment right off the water.
Lake Mendota is also excellent for those who love to fish. The average lake depth is 42 feet and drops as low as 82 feet, making it a great habitat for many different species of fish, including bass, muskie, walleye, pike, and lake sturgeon. Whether you like to fish, sail, jetski, swim, or even just enjoy a quiet stroll through the park by the water, no matter what your ideal day on the lake includes, Lake Mendota has a place for you.
