Grab a friend and stop at the Chamber of Commerce for the pamphlet that describes all of the wonderfully historic homes on the walk. Next, head over to Whelan's for a coffee and begin your journey around the lake. The walk is just about two miles in length. Stop and rest on any of the benches overlooking the lake. If... More

I regularly walk around this lake (it is less than 2 miles around), typically with a cup of coffee from Roots in hand. The views are fantastic, especially at sunset when you are between Fowler Lake and Lac La Belle.

Great family Lake. Lived on it for 10 years. Great fishing if you know the spots. Produces large musky for a small lake. Not crowded for family enjoyment. Great 4th of July Fire Works Show.

I attend the Oconomowoc Art Fair nearly every year with friends. Not only is this one of the best art fairs in the area, the setting is outstanding on Fowler Lake. Playground for kids; flush toilets; grandstand for bands and musicians and poetry readings; well-groomed grounds; fresh breeze off the lake...and of course, plenty of room for a nice long... More

There is a wonderful playground for kids to play on but make sure to watch the little ones. The lake is right down a small but very steep hill and there is no warning such as a sign or a fence- curious little ones could easuly tumble down the hill and into the water. Every August the Art Festival is... More

This lake is convenient but really small, really weedy, fishing is average at best. Yes there are big game fish in there but not enough to write home about. The pan fish are dinks and not worth fishing for. For boating forget it. Way too small to really enjoy. Perfect for a canoe or paddle boat.

Nice shoreline for swimming in Fowler Park. Fishing is ok for younger children. Personally have had many wonderful outings here!

Community favorite for walking. 1.75 miles around. Right downtown. Many restaurants/bars for a refreshment or bite to eat. Coffee shop and two bars bordering the lake frequently have music in early evening.

Don't know that I'd be doing my duty as a citizen of Oconomowoc with saying a bit about Fowler Lake. After all, we are called lake country for a reason. Sitting directly in downtown, it is boat and beach accessible, and has Fowler Park immediately on it's shores. It's also very well known by local and area walkers/joggers. It has... More
