Staff is super helpful with renting and getting in! We used bright blue sparkly paddle boat and lucked out because a canopy was available! You can see Vilas Beach and downtown from the lake, which was free of power boats!
I grew up around the area in the Regent neighborhood. This lake is very enjoyable during the warmer months and a few minute walk to various restaurants and shops on Monroe Street!
This is one of my favorite summer places to hang out. I love to paddle here as it is a smaller no-wake lake. Wingra Boats rents a variety of boats and SUPs. The staff are friendly and helpful. I can easily enjoy an hour paddle...More

Paddle boarding and kayaking was awesome on lake wingra. Lake just big enough to get away, but small enough to keep shore in sight at all times. Staff super friendly, prices very reasonable.

This is a nice small lake to paddle around. You feel removed from the city a bit as it's surrounded by trees and a small college. Easy paddling, but lots of weeds late in the season. Spent about 2 hours going around the whole lake....More
