Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead also known as Manchester Lake (according to the official Wisconsin Lake Book by WI Department of Natural Resource) It is the second largest of the Tri-lakes with about 350 acres of water and a max depth of 30 ft. The Tri-lakes are all heavily subdivided and have covenants and some areas have association fees Lake Arrowhead is probably best known for it’s golf course, Lake Arrowhead County Park andShermalot Water Ski Show. The Lake Arrowhead Golf Course consists of 2 courses; the original, “The Pines Course” & “The Lake Course” which has more water hazards. Both of these golf courses are 18 holes and have been recognized by Golf Digest as 2 of the better courses in the country including a 4.5 star rating on The Pines Course.

Camelot Lake

Lake Camelot is the largest of the Tri-lakes with a sand bottom, about 445 acres of water, a max depth of 24 ft. and an average depth of 9 ft.  Fourteen Mile Creek flows into the lake on the east end, continuous to where Lake Camelot Lake Sherwood meet on the west end where the dam is located then turn back into the creek and into Lake Arrowhead a short distance down.  Spend a day atLake Camelot County Park located on the south end near the middle of the lake.

Sherwood Lake

Lake Sherwood also known as Deer Lodge Lake because the Tri-Lakes Deer Lodge. Sherwood is the smallest of the Tri-lakes with about 246 acres of water and a max depth of 27 ft. and an average depth of 10 ft. It's fed by Spring Brook which flows into the lake from the northeast. You would think that Lake Sherwood would be the home of Shermalot Waterski show but that is on Lake Arrowhead.

Twin Lakes

Twin Lakes it's about 60 acres of water and an unknown max depth and an unknown average depth. Right across the street about 1 city block down is Twin Lakes boat launch on Lake Petenwell.  Now Twin Lake Development is kind of interesting because the Lakefront Lots get dock space on Petenwell Flowage. Twin Lakes Nature Preserve is located just north of the lakes right by Twin Lakes Boat Lauch on Lake Petenwell.

Lake Petenwell

Lake Petenwell is Wisconsin’s second largest body of water (23,000+ Acres), created by Wisconsin River Power Company in the 1940s by building a Hydroelectric Dam on the Wisconsin River. Lake Petenwell is also known as Petenwell flowage. It has plenty of fine waterfront real estate around Petenwell County Park which is one of Central Wisconsin’s most popular parks. Just south of the Petenwell Dam, is Castle Rock Lake, which is WI 4th largest lake. Theses two lakes, along with the Wisconsin, River separate Adams County & Juneau Cty.
