Little Muskego Lake is a 470-acre lake located in Waukesha County. It has a maximum depth of 65 feet and average of 14 feet. It’s a flow-through lake with extensive shallow margins and a single deep basin. The bottom substrate predominantly consists of silt or muck. Because of the impounding effects of the outlet dam, originally constructed in 1838, the lake level is approximately 8-feet higher and the surface area has more than doubled compared to the original natural lake basin.
Residents and visitors to Little Muskego Lake enjoy a variety of lake-related recreational activities including boating, skiing, sailing, and fishing. The Muskego Recreation Program holds water-related classes and recreational activities on the lake. Anglers seek game fish species including largemouth bass, northern pike, and walleyes as well as several panfish species.
The lake is in the excellent Muskego School District and conveniently located off Hwy 43 within 30 minutes from downtown Milwaukee. There is one bar/restaurant called Danny Haskells on the lake however you do have to walk up a small hill.
