>Discover Nagawicka Lake in Waukesha County Lake Country
If you were to ask me what my favorite lake is in Waukesha County I would tell you, without giving it a second thought, it’s NAGAWICKA LAKE.
Nagawicka Lake lies within the boundaries of the City of Delafield and the Village of Nashotah in Waukesha County. Nagawicka Lake is located close to a major express way (I94)and other major roads (Hwy 16, HWY 83, HWY 67) so it is not difficult to travel to Lake Nagawicka.
Nagawicka means “there is sand”, the reason this name was chosen can still be seen in the excellent swimming areas on Nagawicka Lake today. There are sandbars to the west of St. John’s Island and along the western shoreline of the lake that make for great swimming spots. It a common sight all summer long to see boat tie ups at the sandbar locations with splashing kids, floating sun bathers and happy relaxed lake enthusiasts.
Nagawicka Lake is a 917 acre lake located in Waukesha County. It has a maximum depth of 90 feet. Nagawicka Lake is two and one-quarter miles long (North to South) and three quarters mile across (East to West). The total shoreline is five and one quarter miles around. The Bark River flows into the lake on it northwestern shore and continue to add sand to the swimming areas. The beautiful habitat found on the northern portion of Nagawicka Lake host flocks of aquatic fowl for a bird water’s paradise.
The expanses of open water beckon lovers of all water sports to find the elbow room they need to enjoy the summer on Nagawicka Lake. There are many water sports on Lake Nagawicka including canoeing, water skiing, swimming,
boating of various types and sailing. The Nagawicka Yacht Club is a very friendly volunteer sailing club that hosts many activities including a number of sailing regattas during the summer.
Nagawaukee Park on Hwy 83, extends right up to the shore of Lake Nagawicka. The park has 416 acres and is heavily wooded. It has the only public boat launch for the lake and limits the number of boat trailers that can park there. Nagawaukee Park also offers a nice swimming beach with life guards during the summer for swimming, picnic areas, trails, playing fields and a campground area. City of Delafield and Village of Nashotah residents have resident rights to use a boat launch near the downtown area of Delafield, it is not available to the public at all!
Anglers will find Nagawicka Lake offers great fishing. Common species include bass, northern, bluegill, crappie, perch, and walleye.
