Lake Kegonsa

Lake Kegonsa is located midway between Stoughton and McFarland in Dane County, Wisconsin. It is the last of the four lakes in the Yahara chain of lakes. Lake Kegonsa is known as "The Best Kept Secret" because this lake is accessible from the other three lakes only when the locks are open. As a result, Lake Kegonsa is exceptionally quiet due to its location at the end of the chain of lakes. For more information about Lake Kegonsa homes and lifestyles, Click Here.
