We may not officially have the title of Land of 10,000 Lakes like our neighbors, but there are thousands of lakes in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin lakes range from little ponds that can be waded across to huge inland waters that you could spend all day exploring with a boat. There’s one Wisconsin lake that’s unlike any other, though. This is allegedly a lake with no bottom! Of course, it actually does have a bottom, but it is the deepest lake in Wisconsin. Wazee Lake is a stunning spot that you absolutely must see for yourself.

If you’re planning on heading out to the lake, make sure to apply sunscreen for protection! We recommend Sun Bum from REI.

Learn more about the Wazee Lake Recreation Area, including admission fees, scuba fees, and camping fees on the Jackson County website. The county claims the lake is the clearest lake in Wisconsin – here’s another amazing lake that also claims the title.

Have you ever been to this lake with no bottom in Wisconsin? If so, what did you think about it? We’d love to read about your experience in the comments section!
