Booth and Lulu Lake Facts

Lake facts are provided by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. For more information about our local lakes or any lake you can contact the DNR.

Booth Lake is approximately 113 acres with a maximum depth of 24 feet. A boat ramp provides access to this lake. This lake is a seepage lake and contains Large Mouth Bass and Pan fish.

Lulu Lake is approximately 84 acres with a maximum depth of 40 feet. A waterway provides access to this lake. Lulu Lake is considered a kettle lake. This lake contains Northern Pike, Large Mouth Bass, and Pan fish. Of the 150 fish species native to Wisconsin, 59 can be found in Lulu Lake and the Mukwonago River! The river is home to several rare fish species, including the longear sunfish. The clear, deep lake water provides habitat for glacial relict fish such as the blackchin shiner and the Iowa darter.

Enjoy our lakes and have a safe boating season!
