This is a shallow, rocky lake. It is a great area to look at the lake from shore and swim, but is more than likely a waste of time for most who would go out in a boat. The fishing is average and in general the lake leaves a lot to be desired.

We visited here when we had out of town company staying with us this summer. Looking for something different and interesting and maybe a little tourist -like for our friend; we found that here. This is reputed to be haunted in several Wisconsin Haunts books. It is a beautiful cemetery and our friend who collects angel stuff wanted to take... More

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

The lake itself is awesome! The water is pretty clear with minimal weeds. Fishing is excellent on this lake as well. As a 25+ year resident of Oconomowoc I know this lake very well and its one of the cleanest in the area. Also helps to know where the shallow / sandbar spots are in the lake to protect your... More

If you like to waterski or tube this is the lake for you but beware- it can be very, very busy at times. Oconomowoc City Beach is located on one end and that is roped off for safety but at times the wake from the many boats is a little much. Very pretty lake but crowded from one end to... More

LacLaBelle is a beautiful, shallow, weed-free lake with swimming beaches and launches for fishing, waterskiing or just boating. Spinnaker's restaurant is accessible by boat.

La Belle is a very nice lake to hang out on for the day if you trailer your boat. There's a large shallow area you can anchor and get out and swim/float around. Bathrooms and snack bar at the public launch. The parking lot can be a bit of a hassle but if everybody plays nice, it's not too bad.

beautiful lake, but they need more room to park your boat trailer and more launch ramps. But there are a chain of additional lakes in the area- also has a sanded beach
