Green Lake is one of Wisconsin’s best-kept secrets when it comes to vacation spots, and it’s home to many activities, events, and sights to keep the whole family entertained.

Visitors can enjoy a day on the lake by swimming, renting a boat, tubing, jet skiing, fishing, ice fishing, ice skating, and many other aquatic opportunities. Lace up your hiking boots for an excursion like no other as you hike the trails winding through the stunning Green Lake Conference Center grounds. Green Lake is also home to an abundance of wildlife, and you never know what you’ll see next.

World-class fishing draws avid fishermen (and women!) to Green Lake to drop a line in the state’s deepest natural inland lake all year long, and beautiful, nationally acclaimed golf courses span the county, perfect for a day out with friends on the green.

Downtown features a historic opera house filled with culture and a world-renowned lineup to please everyone, no matter your favorite genre. Dining establishments are around every corner, presenting a diverse array of options for every budget.

Busy with events year-round, Green Lake has a weekly summer concert series on Wednesday nights, the “best little fair around” in August, the statewide Chili Cookoff Contest hosted in September, and everyone’s favorite fall festival: Harvest Fest. Weekly farmer’s markets and beautifully catered farm-to-table dinners are a part of what makes Green Lake special, so be sure not to miss out on the special local flavors.

With so much to see and do, Green Lake is a no brainer for your next adventure. For more information about what’s happening in the Green Lake area, please consult our website at or reach out to the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, where we’re always happy to help you plan your trip!
