Castle Rock Lake WI

Castle Rock Lake was manmade and built back in the late 1940’s by Wisconsin River and Power Company by constructing a hydro-electric dam called the Castle Rock Dam.  With an impoundment of 13,000+ acres of water, it is Wisconsin’s 4th largest body of waterCastle Rock Lake is one of Central WI. most popular attractions and has been for many years.  Today it is used for boating, fishing and swimming with something going on nearly all the time.

Castle Rock Lake is part of the Wisconsin River Flowage System which includes Lake Petenwell (WI’s 2nd Largest) to the north.  From the Petenwell Dam, there is a little stretch of Wisconsin river before it opens up into Castle Rock lake.  After Castle Rock Dam the water turns back into the Wisconsin river and flows all the way to the Wisconsin Dells dam.  “You CANNOT boat from Lake Petenwell to Castle Rock Lake to the Wisconsin River because to the hydroelectric dams.”

The Wisconsin River is just one source of water that helps fill the lake, there also Big Roche-A-Cri Creek, Duck Creek, & Little-Roche-A-Cri creek.  Buckhorn State Park is in Juneau county on the West side of the lake.  Castle Rock County Park is in Adams County which is on the east side.

Strongs Prairie Township is located in Adams County, Central Wisconsin which borders plenty of frontage on Castle Rock Lake and Lake Petenwell along the West side.  ATV Routes and Snowmobile Trails connect to the trail system in the Monroe Township to the North and this area offers plenty of public access land and several great launches on both lakes. And Strongs Prairie is home to the Castle Rock Horseback Riding Trails which consists of about 50 miles of roads and path through the woods.

Dead Horse Creek joins Big Roche-A-Cri Creek which flows into Arkdale Lake created by a small dam then moves on past Crystal Brook Woods just north of Northern Bay and then ends up in Castle Rock Lake. Also on the southeast corner Carter Creek joins with Little Roche-A-Cri Creek which ends up flowing into Castle Rock Lake part of the Wisconsin Flowage System. A good portion of the west side along the lakes and the section of the Wisconsin River is public land owned by Wisconsin River Power Company.

Quincy Township WI

Quincy Township WI is located in Adams County, Central Wisconsin and is home to Castle Rock County Park on Wisconsin’s 4th largest body of water; Castle Rock Lake. Castle Rock Hydro Dam helps regulate the water levels of the lake and provides a nice recreational area for fishermen. After the dam it turns back into the Wisconsin River System that flows south to Wisconsin Dells. Parts of the Township are heavily subdivided mostly for vacation homes. Dellwood is one of the largest and oldest subdivisions in Quincy. Here’s where several of the area creeks feed into Castle Rock Lake; Little Roche-A-Cri Creek, Klein Creek, Duck Creek and White Creek. Quincy Township doesn’t have much for lakes but there is Silver lake about 7 acres and two large unnamed lakes by Quincy Bluffs Wetlands State Wildlife Area & Sohlberg Silver Lake State Natural Area.  There are also 2 rock formations including Lone Rock and Quincy Bluff.
