Jordan Lake
Jordan Lake is located in the Town of Jackson, Adams County, WI, in the south central part of Wisconsin. Jordan Lake is a natural seepage lake fed by precipitation, surface runoff, and groundwater. It has good to very good water quality and very good water clarity. There are 213 surface acres, with a maximum depth of 100 feet. Except for one section, Jordan Lake is heavily-developed. With no stream outlet, water leaves the lake through groundwater seepage or by evaporation from the lake’s surface. There is a public boat ramp owned by the Adams County Parks Department on the west side of the lake. There are also condominiums, RV campgrounds and resorts on the shore. The lake is managed by the Jordan Lake Improvement District.
