Water: depends on wind, but colder then inland lakes, currently clear

Great for beginners due to the shallow beach area, avoid North wind

Little Muskego Lake

Address: W182S6666 Hardtke Dr. Muskego, WI 53150
Water: depends on boating activity, warmer
Parking: yes, $4 for non-residents
Date: 07/04/2014

Notes: Honestly I very much disliked it. Maybe paddling before 10am would be best to avoid all the lake traffic. After 10am it was laud and busy with boats, jet skis, pontoons, tubing, and water skiing. And as the day progressed it just got worse. somebody told me its a party lake and it sure felt like that. In addition its currently full of seaweeds and not clear at all.

But on the upside I was able to see a deer very close to the water, and there were a few nice spots.
