Lauderdale is one of the cleanest lakes around. Spring fed and crystal clear. There are perch, walleye (stocked the past 3 years) northern pike, large and small mouth bass as well as blue gill. Very hilly with lots of oaks. Great lake to swim and ski too. Says Jane Larsen
7 feet of snow fall every winter on the 20 trails of Alpine Valley. This nearby ski area has a drop from top to bottom of 388 feet and has 14 different ski lifts. The tough trails
account for 20% of the much-loved trails at Alpine Valley, the ski area every skier enjoys. There's 90 acres of skiable area to take pleasure in, 80% of which are blue and green trails.
Green Lake is not near Lauderdale Lakes, it is the northernmost lake of the three lakes making up Lauderdale Lakes. It is the deepest of the three major basins. The best thing about the lakes is the fishing. Habitat protection is important. Two public launches are available, but the lakes lack any boat rentals. Bait must be purchased and brought along. Panfish and largemouth bass provide the most action. Pike are present and smallmouth bass have been recently stocked. On occasion, a walleye is caught.
