Amber Lake

This lake feels private, protected and cozy with minimal boat traffic. Cedar Creek Park, on the NW side has beautiful picnic areas, nature trails and bike paths along with some of the best disc golf in the area.

182 Acres, 19 Feet Deep, Shoreline 2.2 Miles, North-South Distance 0.77 Miles

Amber Lake is the only lake not connected with the rest of the chain. Since it is on the upstream end of our Fairmont Chain of Lakes, and sits at a higher elevation than the others, a dam is needed to separate Amber Lake from Hall Lake. If we didn’t have the dam in place, most of the water would drain into the others, making Amber more of a slough or swamp like wetland. In 2014 the DNR stocked this lake with Walleye fingerlings and the FLF stocked it with 400 Bluegills. It is a quiet lake and often preferred by anglers. We think this lake was named by some of the original settlers, back in the 1800’s, who probably came from Amber, New York.
