Indian Lake County Park
At 483 acres, Indian Lake County Park is one of Dane County’s largest parks. A winding trail leads to a historic chapel built in 1857, located on a hilltop with a breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding valley. Trails provide access around the entire lake, offering many recreational opportunities including access to a log cabin warming house. The park also has an unfenced dog park located adjacent to the small boat launch on the west side of the lake. (Dane County Parks Department)
