About Lake Metonga

Lake Metonga is a 2157 acre lake located in Forest County, in north central Wisconsin. It has a maximum depth of 79 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from public boat landings on the north and south ends of the lake whre there are also public beaches and picnic areas. The south landing is adjacent to a Veterans Memorial County Park Campground which has recently been refiurbished with updated facilities. The campground is open from May 1 thru October 1.

Fish include Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye. The lake’s water clarity is very clear with visibility down to 20-30 feet. Several times throughout the year, we study the lake’s water clarity and chemistry. The testing is done in the deepest hole, in front of Charlie’s Lake Metonga Resort. Water clarity in our lake seems to be increasing. This is most likely the result of zebra mussels in the lake filtering out plankton which is needed for other native species to survive.

The data collected for water quality is posted through the Citizens’ Lake Monitoring Network, sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Click here to view all data.
