Parker Lake
Parker Lake is located in the Town of Jackson, Adams County, WI, in the south central part of Wisconsin, right off State Highway 82. The lake is 60 surface acres in size. Maximum depth is about 37 feet, with an average depth of 13 feet. About 21% of the lake is over 20’ deep. Parker Lake is a “seepage” lake, a natural lake fed by precipitation, surface runoff, and groundwater. With no stream outlet, water leaves the lake through groundwater seepage or by evaporation from the lake’s surface. There is a public wayside located on Highway 82 with walking access to the lake. There is no public boat landing, although the Parker Lake Lodge permits boat launching for a fee. The lake is managed by the Parker Lake Association.
