Dane County is blessed with 37 lakes, 475 miles of rivers and streams, and 14 miles of the Wisconsin River. These waterways are part of what makes this area so special. The lakes of the Yahara River; Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Waubesa, and Lake Kegonsa, were formed about 10,000 years ago when the last glacier deposited a thick layer of glacial till, (unsorted sediment), over the landscape and dammed up the Yahara River valley. Today, the Yahara River watershed, (land area draining to the lakes), consists of 359 square miles. The Yahara River begins just north of Dane County in Columbia County and flows south to connect the four lakes, finally joining the Rock River in Rock County.
