From rolling green hills to glistening lakes, history and heritage to new and cool, an easier pace to the friendliest people, it’s how you can enjoy the good life in Pewaukee. Smack in the middle of what our locals refer to as Lake Country, a recreationist’s dream come true---right where fun meets adventure. For instance, Pewaukee Lake is the largest lake in Waukesha County, almost 2,500 acres in total offering everything from inland sailing to pleasure boating, wave running to water skiing and of course, some of the best fishing in the state! But don’t miss the lakefront shops, restaurants and other fun destinations that will fill your afternoon!

When the Seasons Change You May be Surprised to Find...

There is still plenty to experience on your visit. Shopping; events, lakeside dining showing a different character of the lake as the shores come alive with color.

Find Fun Here...

Dip into Pewaukee Lake – in the heart of Pewaukee- for a wide variety of water sports, such as sailing, fishing, swimming and water skiing. When it’s time for a break from all of your water sports activities, come and relax on our white sandy beach, the only free public beach in Waukesha County. Even if your definition of water- related activity is sipping cold drinks dockside or gazing at the lake while dining in one of Pewaukee’s fine or casual restaurants, you can’t help but have a good time on the lake.

Fishing? You’ll Catch the Big One if You...

Bring your boat or rent one on 2,500 acre Pewaukee Lake, one of Wisconsin’s top lakes to land 50-plus-inch muskies! Need help finding the hot spots, let Mike’s Extreme Guide Service or Dancing with Walleyes take you there. You will appreciate their knowledge, passion and use of their highest quality equipment to make it one of your best fishing excursions ever. And of course, you can always learn from the locals at either of the two Smokey’s Bait Shops, found on the lake.
