Sailing on Lake KegonsaLake Kegonsa Homes & Real Estate

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.

Brief History of Lake Kegonsa

Early area settlers referred to Lake Kegonsa as “First Lake” because it was the first of the four Madison lakes they encountered traveling north up the Yahara River. The name Kegonsa is attributed to the Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) Indians who once lived in the area. Kegonsa means “Lake of Many Fishes”. Today, Lake Kegonsa is still one of Wisconsin’s most productive fishing lakes.
