This good lake has 22 miles of shoreline and 15 square miles of surface area. Lake Mendota has marinas. This lake is a good site for boating, sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and fishing.
Lots of folks from Madison come to Lake Mendota, and Eagle Heights is beautiful and can be seen from here. What a place this is for outdoors folks. Don't leave Lake Mendota without visiting Governor Nelson State Park, and naturally Dorn Creek
is a delightful stream that is worth visiting. There's no such thing as a bad day of skiing at nearby Cascade Mountain. In the event that you wanna get out on the water, Skipper Bud's Madison Marina is in close proximity.
