These 7 Wisconsin Quarry Lakes Are Perfect For A Day Of Fun In The Sun 

Recently, we told you about Wazee Lake, a 146-acre lake that formed after an abandoned quarry began filling with water. The former quarry is now a prime swimming spot – complete with a beach and water that’s crystal clear. And while there’s no denying that Wazee Lake is incredible, it’s not the only great swimming hole that started off as a quarry. There are several others here in Wisconsin; here are some of our favorites.
