Castle Rock Lake / Wisconsin River Dam


Upper Dam (Castle Rock Lake)

↓  Lower Dam (Wisconsin River)



"In the late 1940s, upon completion of the Castle Rock dam, the Wisconsin and Yellow Rivers backed up to form the Castle Rock Flowage. The towns of Germantown and Werner became just a memory as the flowage covered most of the land where they once existed."

 In 1949, one of the twin Petenwell and Castle Rock dams was dedicated. These dams were constructed on the Wisconsin River by the Wisconsin Power and Light Company and the Wisconsin River Power Company and were fitted with large hydroelectric generating plants. This damming of the river produced the Petenwell and Castle Rock Lakes which now make up most of the county’s western border. The two largest county parks are located on these lakes. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~adams6/history
