Deer Lake Improvement Association


Deer Lake is located in western Wisconsin, five miles east of the beautiful and historic St. Croix River Valley.  Between the lake and the river are many large gorges in the rocks, left by glaciers over 12,000 years ago. 

These gorges, many over 100 feet deep, are called dalles.  The lake is spring fed both internally and externally and covers over 840 acres with a maximum depth of 46 feet.  A small dam at the east end of the lake helps assure a near constant water level. 

The interesting and colorful trees lining the shoreline include towering evergreens and oaks. 

In the time since the first frame cabin was built on the lake in 1903, the lake has seen steady, yet conscientious development.  It is now considered one of the most desirable lakes in Wisconsin.
