Indian Lake County Park

At 483 acres, Indian Lake County Park is one of Dane County's largest parks.  The main entrance is located on STH 19 about two miles west of USH 12. A winding trail leads to a historic chapel built in 1857, located on a hilltop with a breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding valley. Trails provide access around the entire lake, offering many recreational opportunities including access to a log cabin warming house. The park also has an unfenced dog park located adjacent to the small boat launch on the west side of the lake.  Please note that boats using gas motors are prohibited on Indian Lake - electric motors are allowed.
