Welcome to Watchic Lake!

Parent and Chicks July 2023

Watchic Lake is a 448 acre spring fed lake. The first camp on the lake was built in 1900, and there are now about 250 properties on the lake. Watchic Lake offers clean water, swimming, good fishing, and a variety of wildlife. The Watchic Lake Association works to improve, protect, and preserve the lake’s water quality and fragile ecosystem.

Thank you to all our members, who made 2023 another record breaking year for membership at 166 members (however only 42% of properties are members).

See our membership page for more details.

Dam Closed March 13

Shortly after ice-out, the dam gate was closed to raise the water level. Ice Out this year was March 8th. Click or touch here for historical Watchic Lake Ice Out Dates. Closing the dam at this time helps protect loon nests in the spring. The water level will gradually increase by about 18 inches over a two-week period following the dam closing. Plan your boat and dock installation accordingly.
