It's easy to fall in love with Wisconsin's 15,000 lakes. Breathtaking scenery and
beautiful wildlife provide the backdrop along thousands of miles of shoreline, where
Wisconsin residents and our visitors can fish, boat, swim or just relax and enjoy
the peaceful atmosphere.

The DNR partners with the University of Wisconsin Extension and citizens around
the state to help protect and maintain these amazing natural resources while providing
some of the best recreational opportunities in the nation. Today more than 600 lake
organizations and thousands of volunteers play a leadership role in the stewardship
of Wisconsin's lakes.
