They have rebuilt much of the southern shoreline by the retail parking lot areas. Nice new boardwalk/fishing pier. Still a nice place to walk out for ice fishing as well. A quaint place to walk around after picking up an ice cream cone.

If you’re in Oconomowoc it is necessary to take some time to walk around Fowler Lake. Do it around sunset to get beautiful views of the sun above the lake. Stop and sit at any of the many benches and take in the beautiful view.

We frequently walk around Fowler Lake and stop at the children’s play area or visit downtown Oconomowoc. Fowler is also home to Moonlit Movies and art festivals throughout the year. Definitely a community, family and leisure hot spot to visit anytime you’re in O-town!

Wonderful sightseeig casual 2.5 mile walk around the lake will reward you with beautiful homes and views. A romatic walk or athletic run. Several good food and drink establishments are located around it. We stopped at Sausage House for sandwiches.

Fowler Lake is a damn made lake flowing into LacLaBelle. It’s a moderate lake for recreation because it is small. A beautiful park and playground for families to picnic.

Came here to check out the lake. The Fowler Lake public access point has a nice playground area and small boardwalk near downtown. The small boardwalk has a few seating areas to look out at the lake.

This is a nice lake for a canoe ride. the lake is not too big and there are no speed boats. We had a good time. The boat launch has been remade as is the whole park / launch area.

Small lake with little available. Unless you live on the lake, I don't know why you'd chose this lake over the hundreds to chose from in the area.

Great walkaround Fowler Lake for a walking meditation any time of the year. End up at one of the local restaurants or bars like Bella Gusto or Splash at the end of the stroll/hike/run for a memorable time.
