Patrick Lake
Patrick Lake is located in the Town of New Chester, Adams County, WI, in the south central part of Wisconsin. Patrick Lake is a mesotrophic natural seepage lake with good to very good water quality and clarity. It has 50 surface acres, with a maximum depth of 21 feet and a mean depth of 10 feet. In the past few years, the water level in Patrick Lake has been declining substantially. Studies are underway to determine what factors may be contributing to the ongoing lowering water levels. There is a county park and boat launch at the southeast “corner” of the lake. The lake is managed by the Patrick Lake Improvement District.
