Green Lake County, at the southern end of the New North region, is located 90 miles northwest of Milwaukee and 180 miles northwest of Chicago in a picturesque area of Central Wisconsin, surrounded by agricultural acres, lakes and a myriad of industrial operations. The county seat is located in the city of Green Lake which takes its name from the state’s deepest lake. The cool, clear waters reach a maximum depth of 237 feet and cover an area 7 ½ miles long and 2 ½ miles wide, bordered by sandy beaches, wooded shoreline and historic resorts.
The historic Fox River runs through two Green Lake County communities, and with 20 lakes and the river, the County offers an abundance of recreational opportunities, including boating, fishing, swimming, golfing, biking, hiking and snowmobiling. With hundreds of acres of public hunting grounds, Green Lake County has become a favorite destination for hunters.
Green Lake County is also home to “Wisconsin’s Largest Weekly Outdoor Flea Market” during the summer months. Several of the communities offer concerts in the park and museums, including a one-room schoolhouse and a train depot.
Whether day-tripping, vacationing or choosing to live there, you’ll find everything you need and want, in Green Lake Country.
