Hall Lake

Hall Lake and Budd Lake both share Gomsrud Park which is nestled in between. The park with its ample parking, sand pit volley ball courts, playground, picnic tables and pavilion is a perfect gathering spot and there’s also dining nearby. The north end has a great boat launch and handicap accessible fishing pier.

552 Acres, 27 Feet Deep

Hall Lake is the largest and deepest of the chain of lakes. It is a great lake not only for waterskiing, but also for sailboats, jet skis, wind surfing, fishing, snowmobiling, pond hockey, etc. While boating on the west side, pay attention to the buoys as the Dutch Creek outlet has created some shallow waters there. Gomsrud Park, between Hall and Budd Lakes, has the largest parking area and boat launch in the city. In 2014 the DNR stocked Hall Lake with Walleye fingerlings. This lake is named after one of our early settlers, E. Banks Hall, who in 1856 owned land on the eastern shore.
