The cold, clear waters of Walloon Lake cover 4,586 acres and create 30.5 miles of shoreline. This stunning lake continues to be a family destination for generations, and has served as inspiration for artists and writers such as Ernest Hemingway.
With 15 nature preserves and 2,000 acres in the Walloon Lake Watershed—protected by the Walloon Lake Trust & Conservancy—this area is outstanding for those who seek an active lifestyle. Fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and hunting are popular local activities.
The southern end of Walloon Lake is home to a small Village
community where folks gather to dine at the Barrel Back Restaurant, pickup goods at the Walloon Village General Store, stroll Melrose Park, and beat summer heat with ice cream at Sweet Tooth. In the summertime, Walloon Lake Inn and Hotel Walloon host travelers from all over the world. The energy in the Village is a big part of Walloon’s charm.
