Big Roche-A-Cri Lake WI
Big Roche-A-Cri Lake is one of Adams County more popular lakes due to its size and location in Preston Township and being right on Hwy 13. This 205 acre lake was formed by the dam on the West side and is filled by Big Roche-A-Cri Creek which also forms Arkdale Lake and then ends up in Castle Rock Lake. Most of the frontage on Big Roche-A-Cri Lake is not only divided but is also built on. You’ll find a mixture of vacation getaways and full time residential homes on the lake. The homes and cabins on the west side of hwy 13, which is the deeper side, seems to be much larger and nicer compared to the east side of the highway which is shallower and has steeper banks.

Preston Township is located in Adams County, Central Wisconsin just north of Adams/Friendship. Preston has the only State Park in the County; Roche-A-Cri State Park. The park features Roche-A-Cri Mound which has 303 steps all the way to the top with a lookout platform facing the north with views also to both east and west where you can see the hills of Coloma and all the way to the Wisconsin River Valley. Carter Creek flows through the state park and eventually feeds into Castle Rock Lake, WI. You can see dozens of Turkey Vultures circling the mound on any given day. Directly to the South is Friendship Mound which over looks both Friendship Lake and Friendship Park.
Preston is also home to Big Roche-A-Cri Lake which is about 200 acres of ski able water formed by Big Roche-A-Cri Creek trout stream. There's also Carter Creek, Deed Horse Creek, Fordham Creek and Bingham Creek which forms Bingham Pond. Besides Roche-A-Cri State Park there's also Remnant Fordham Creek and Remnant Little Roche-A-Cri Creek which is also open to the public for Trout Fishing and Hunting.
