Potter Lake

Potter Lake is part of the East Troy Area. Located in Walworth County, East Troy is a quaint Midwestern village located in southeastern Wisconsin. With a population of just under 5,000, the village is known for the natural beauty that surrounds it.

East Troy was originally settled by Jacob Burgit and Austin McCracken in 1847 due to its convenient location along the road from Milwaukee to Janesville. The area was specifically chosen, as it featured fertile soil, and was easily drainable. This, coupled with the easy terms offered by the founders, led to a population boom in the 1850s. As the century progressed, multiple railroads made inroads to the area, connecting East Troy with the booming metropolises of Chicago and Milwaukee.


The East Troy Community School District operates the local schooling, and serves grades K-12. The district is comprised of four schools: two elementary schools, East Troy Middle School and East Troy High School. Interstate access is available via Interstate 43, providing easy transportation throughout the Midwest.

East Troy is known for its natural beauty, and is a popular destination for outdoor recreation year round. The Alpine Valley Ski Hill is one of the largest ski resorts in Wisconsin, and also features a golf course, dining, and on-site lodging. It is also home to the Alpine Valley Music Theatre, a 37,000-seat amphitheater popular for summer concerts. Lake Beulah and Booth Lake are the two largest lakes in the region, and are popular destinations for fishing, boating, canoeing, swimming and with beachgoers.
