Friendship Lake
Friendship Lake is a mesotrophic impoundment located in the Towns of Adams and Preston, Adams County, in the south central part of Wisconsin. It has good water quality and good water clarity. There are 115 surface acres, with a maximum depth of 16 feet and an average depth of 6 feet. The lake is created by the damming of Little Roche a Cri Creek and is fed by a large stream system that originates in the next county eastward. The dam is privately owned and has, in the past, generated a small amount of electricity, which was sold to a power company. There is a county-owned park with boat launch and public beach located on the northwest end of the lake. Friendship Lake is managed by the Friendship Lake District.
