Geocache Description:

The Petenwell Flowage consists of 23,040 acres and is the second largest inland body of water in Wisconsin. It was built in the late 1940s for hydroelectric generation and flood control. The flowage is on Wisconsin's Central plain or Central Sand, the ancient bed of Glacial Lake Wisconsin that was a prehistoric one-million-acre body of water.

The power company has opened this section of the east dike to public use for fishing, hiking, and nature observation, and there is a nice trail here thru the woods to the dike itself.. The area offers good views of the flowage and some bank fishing. Located in Adams County in the Town of Strongs Prairie, this area stretches north of Chicago Drive and east of 21st Avenue.

Parking for the east dike is available at the north end of 21st Avenue.
