Enjoyed walking around this historic lake country neighborhood. It is so wonderful to have a place that you can walk in the community.

Pretty lake. Stagnant water. Run on sidewalk of nearest road. Short 2 miles around lake. End up running on sidewalk thru downtown. Ok.

So peaceful and serene with restrooms and a playground. Everything was well kept and lovely! I only wish we could have found the walking trail everyone else mentioned

This is one of the many lakes that make the 'Lake Country' area worth visiting. It adjoins Lac La Belle in downtown Oconomowoc. A walk along Fowler Lake is a sensory experience. Beautiful architecture, friendly people, shopping along the way if you care to ...

This is a nice lake but it is very small for boating or skiing on. It is could for canoeing or kayaking. The lake is pretty weedy though.
