Castle Rock Lake
Castle Rock Lake is part of the Wisconsin River flowage, located between Adams and Juneau counties in Central Wisconsin. It is a man-made lake of about 14,000 acres that opened in the early 1950s and is the fifth largest lake in Wisconsin. Its maximum depth is 36 feet. The dam is operated by the Wisconsin Power Company and generates electricity. Buckhorn State Park is located on the west side of Castle Rock Lake. There are also Adams and Juneau County parks on the lake.

Petenwell Lake, slightly north of Castle Rock Lake, is also part of the Wisconsin River Flowage. It is a man-made lake of 23,040 surface acres and a maximum depth of 48 feet. The dam on the lake is owned by the Wisconsin Power Company and is used to generate electricity. There are a number of county parks located on both sides of the lake.
