About Stewart Lake County Park
Stewart Lake County Park was established in 1935, making it the first County Park in Dane County. Within this 191-acre park is shimmering Stewart Lake, an artificial lake on spring-fed tributary of Moen Creek. The lake offers a challenge for trout and bass fishing. Recreational facilities include picnic shelters, play equipment, hiking trails, and a beach area (no lifeguard on duty). Please note that gas motors are not allowed on Stewart Lake (electric motors are permitted).
Stewart Lake is midway down a narrow sandstone valley. The Park and the walk extend up the valley to the ridge top surrounding views of the lake. The walk features Oak Openings, Savannas, a bluff ridge and Prairies overlooking Stewart Lake. Beautiful views from atop the ridges and among the prairie. Bring a towel, the sand bottom beach is available without life guard.
