Welcome to the Village of Elkhart Lake

Located in the middle of the beautiful Kettle Moraine, the Village of Elkhart Lake is nestled on the shores of one of Wisconsin’s deepest and cleanest lakes. Incorporated in 1894, Elkhart Lake is rich with legends stretching from its American Indian forebearers and infamous gamblers to its longstanding status as one of the world’s top road racing destinations. The Village is known for the charm of its Victorian architecture and welcoming spirit.

Elkhart Lake is a community right with quality schools, community services and active governmental and civic organizations. If you are in the neighborhood, we hope you’ll pull up a chair and enjoy our annual Fireman’s Parade as just one example of the kind of values, spirit and hospitality that makes Elkhart Lake a great place to live, work and play.

So cool from the path vantage point too. ❤

This post just hurts my heart... without being able to walk the path, Elkhart Lake’s just not the same. A lost treasure... 😔

Polite people walking can. Some Residents also are just not the same as past owners.

Instead, the haulers will convoy from Plymouth into the track beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. Fans can still view the hauler convoy as they make their way up Highway 57 from Plymouth, to County Road J, and then to Highway 67 before entering Road America at Gate 6. ... See MoreSee Less
