Comments: Cobblestone Lake, a former gravel pit that has been turned into a lake, has plenty of fishable shoreline and a pier. The lake has two deep areas, one on each end of the lake with a shallower area connecting the two. Maximum depth is nearly 20 feet deep. A DNR fish survey was conducted in 2010. Walleye are frequently stocked in this lake and have provided delight for many anglers. Wintertime ice-fishing for Walleye is popular on this lake.
