Discover Lake Mills and unlock the legend

Legendary Lake Mills in beautiful Jefferson County Wisconsin is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty. From the mysterious waters of Rock Lake to the scenic Glacial Drumlin Bike Trail to historic Aztalan State Park and Museum to the picturesque downtown shopping and dining district, Lake Mills has something for everyone!

Why are the waters of Rock Lake so mysterious? Many tales have been told of stone structures reported to be found on the bottom of Rock Lake. One such legend says that after suffering a long and terrible drought, natives appealed to their gods for help by building and using sacrificial pyramids. In answer to their prayers, great waters soon covered the pyramids and created the beautiful lake the Native Americans came to call Tyranena meaning, sparkling waters.

Legends aside, Rock Lake is a crystal clear 1,371-acre recreational oasis, beckoning fun-seeking visitors and residents to its cool waters and tree-lined shores. The lake is surrounded by five parks which offer fishing, swimming, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, water-skiing, or a leisurely sunset cruise, all part of your next legendary experience.

Lake Mills lies on the shores of Rock Lake just 25 miles east of Madison and 55 miles west of Milwaukee. Take I-94 exit #259. If you’re traveling from the north or south, Hwy 89 is our Main Street – what could be easier!
